Creating safe and inclusive educational settings for LGBTQIA+ students is an ongoing struggle for many school librarians. This presentation will focus on the importance of inclusion for all students and will provide examples of what various forms of inclusion looks like in both school libraries and the classroom. Common implicit biases when evaluating LGBTQIA+ literature will be discussed, and advice for working with colleagues and administrators to promote change will also be provided.

Learning Objectives:
  • Participants will be able to articulate why inclusive LGBTQIA+ education is beneficial to not only LGBTQIA+ students but also the entire school.
  • Participants will be able to define common implicit biases in reviewing and evaluating LGBTQIA+ literature.
  • Participants will identify action items that they can take for improving LGBTQIA+ inclusive education at their own institutes.
