Exploring the experiences of LGBTQI+ parents and their children and their relationship with schools, this book illuminates how these families work with schools, and how schools do, or do not, support children of LGBTQI parents. Based on empirical research and making space for the voices of both parents and children, the research extends beyond previous studies of gay and lesbian parenting to include bisexual, transgender, queer, non-binary, and intersex parents. The authors consider the influence of pressure groups, school inspection frameworks, legislation, and the media, and examine the ways in which some schools are working to become more inclusive.

Anna Carlile is Senior Lecturer in Inclusive Education at Goldsmiths, University of London, UK. Carrie Paechter is Professor of Education and Director of the Nottingham Centre for Children, Young People and Families, Nottingham Trent University, UK.
