This text provides ideas and strategies for affirming diversity and overcoming heterosexism and homophobia in a wide variety of settings, such as education, politics, the media and the helping profession. Providing strategies for educators, counsellors, community activists and leaders and those in the gay and lesbian communities, it is organized into four sections: "Foundational Issues" - an overview of heterosexism and homophobia and a multicultural perspective on communication; "Working within Communities - Ethnic Groups and Family Members"; "Working with Students"; "Working in Professional Training Programs"; and "Working within Institutions". Role-playing exercises, methods of "coming out" and outlines for workshops are also included.
