Friday, 9 April
This week we are speaking with the brilliant Allison Zionts (she/her). We discuss disrupting heteronormativity and creating safe spaces in school, as well as Allison’s experiences as a bisexual teacher and running her schools LGBT+ club, called the Rainbow Club.
In this episode Allison draws on her experience as a teacher, as well as her PhD research into LGBT+ safe spaces, to discuss heteronormativity and bisexual erasure. Allison also shares some brilliant advice for teachers trying to make their educational spaces more safe and inclusive for LGBT+ people.
