Using a Film to Challenge Heteronormativity: South African Teachers "Get Real" in Working with LGB Youth
Richardson, Eric M.
Journal of LGBT Youth, v5 n2 p63-72 Jun 2008
The author explains how the film "Get Real" enabled him to explore, with a group of South African student teachers, the complex ways in which queer adolescents negotiate their daily lives, the struggles they have with "coming out" to their friends and families, the problems with representation, and the connections between hegemonic masculinity, heterosexism, and homophobia.
