Rethinking Homophobia: Interrogating Heteronormativity in an Urban School
Franck, Kevin C.
Theory and Research in Social Education, v30 n2 p274-286 Spr 2002
This article challenges the reader to think of homophobia as a negative social force affecting all members of an urban school community. The author argues that homophobia can only be undone if it is attacked at the intersection of race, class, and gender. A description of an anti-homophobia plan for an urban high school follows a brief discussion of interlaying systems of oppression and privilege associated with being a member of a dominant group. (Contains 2 notes.)
