Welcoming & Supporting Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Families We are proud to launch our new “Welcoming and Supporting Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Families” brochure. LGBT families are the fastest growing type of family structure in Canada. As educators, we have the responsibility to ensure our classrooms and schools are welcoming places, and that LGBT families see themselves reflected in the school environment and the curriculum. This brochure highlights a variety of ways that ETFO members can accomplish this, including curriculum links, resources, useful language, and communication tips. A workshop on this topic will also be available for locals to access in the Spring of 2014. For more information, please contact Kelly Hayes (ext. 2244, firstname.lastname@example.org) at 416-962-3836 or 1-888-838-3836.
