Reflections on Experiences in Peer-Based Anti-Homophobia Education
Collins, Anthony
Teaching Education, v15 n1 p107-112 Mar 2004
This paper explores the potential for peer-based anti-oppression education groups to achieve social change, considers the conditions that make their work possible and introduces several critical questions and issues raised by such efforts. I have drawn upon my involvement in my former high school's Rainbow Alliance, as well as in two Toronto peer-based anti-homophobia education groups. I connect my experiences in the Rainbow Alliance to an account by Sharp (2003) of his involvement as an educator within a similar Canadian high school group, which he detailed in a previous issue of "Teaching Education".
