New grant launches initiative to shift how LGBTQ sexuality is discussed in schools
Date:2/28/2013

LGBTQ parents or discussing how sexuality relates to current events or humor."

The researchers will conduct a study exploring the challenges and opportunities associated with this approach. The findings will provide a blueprint for schools that want to implement similar programs, and will be shared with policymakers, providing them with a broader understanding of the lives of LGBTQ youth.

The project, titled "Beyond Bullying: Shifting the Discourse of LGBTQ Sexuality and Youth in Schools" is supported by the Ford Foundation's Sexuality Research Initiative. The grant will enable graduate students to assist with the project and receive research training.

"We are thrilled to be working with the Ford Foundation, an organization dedicated to social justice and human rights," Mamo said. "These values are consistent with our research and scholarship at the Center for Research and Education on Gender and Sexuality and the Health Equity Institute as well as with the broader SF State mission."

The initiative is a collaboration between SF State's Center for Research and Education on Gender and Sexuality, where Fields is on the faculty, and the University's Health Equity Institute, where Mamo is on the faculty.

"Both entities share a commitment to questions of sexuality and social justice," Fields said. "This project really combines our research strengths."

For the two-year project, Fields and Mamo will partner with researchers Nancy Lesko from Teachers College, Columbia University and Jen Gilbert from York University in Toronto. In each of the three cities, the researchers will work with community organizations, multimedia partners and public school districts.
