Young Adult Reflections on Having an Openly Gay Teacher during Early Adolescence.Rofes, Eric
Abstract: Presents one teacher's story of being openly gay from 1978-83. He surveyed his former students, now in their 30s, about their experience as young adolescents with a gay teacher. Results showed that students did not necessarily confront intense concerns about it. Many noted the disparity between the intensity of the controversy and their lived experience with a gay teacher.
