Sexualities on the Move: A Comparison of the Work Experiences of Gay Male Educators Teaching Overseas
Mizzi, Robert C.
Canadian Journal of Educational Administration and Policy, n173 p73-92 Nov 2015
This paper expands on the extant research on gay male educators by comparing two research projects on such educators who taught in international settings. One study focused on five gay, male, adult educators who relocated to Canada from countries in the Global South and the second study focused on eight gay, male, adult educators who relocated to Kosovo from countries in the Global North. Both projects demonstrated that (1) study participants are concerned with the safety and inclusiveness of their work environments, and (2) "sexual orientation" can be a self-limiting concept when used in education policy and practice. Recommendations for educational administrators conclude this paper.
