Flaunt It!: Queers Organizing for Public Education and Justice (Counterpoints #340) By Shirley R. Steinberg (Editor), Therese Quinn, Erica Meiners Cover Image

Other Books in Series

This is book number 340 in the Counterpoints series.


This groundbreaking book provides examples of on-the-ground organizing and academic activism, drawing attention to the militarization of public schools, the erasure of queer lives at private institutions with anti-gay lifestyle statements, and the failure of professional educational organizations to act for social justice. Flaunt It offers a constructive and timely analysis of the local, felt impact of neoliberal policies on the lives of those most marginal in schools and in communities.
