"Good Morning, I'm a Heterosexual": A Case in the Closet in Rural Australia.
Downey, Belinda
Education in Rural Australia, v11 n2 p33-43 2001
A case study of an Australian gay teacher in a rural community explores issues related to being in "the closet," which is seen as a patriarchal construction designed to maintain itself. Despite legal protection to equal rights, gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered teachers experience significant discrimination, fueled largely by public perceptions that gays are pedophiles.
