This webinar brings together expertise around sexualities and identities from both teacher training and teaching in secondary school contexts. Dr Kate Russell and Dr Holly Henderson bring together their work exploring the experiences of LGBTQ+ trainee teachers in Australia and LGBT identified secondary state school teachers in the UK. Both presentations situate their work within the complex, heteronormative, and often restrictive spaces of schools to explore how LGBTQ+ identified teachers navigate their training and professional lives. Both projects give insight into the specific worlds of trainees and teachers and how LGBTQ+ status intersects with professional identities and educational expectations of becoming and then being a teacher. The webinar will provide interest to those in teacher training contexts, schools, colleges, and higher education settings.
