In recent years, researchers have considerably expanded our understanding of the experiences of students of color and of students who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered, and questioning (ie. Queer). They have provided us with rich resources for addressing racism and heterosexism; however, few have examined the unique experiences of students who are both queer and of color, and few have examined the heterosexist or white-centered nature of anti-racist or anti-heterosexist education (respectively). What of the students and educators who live and teach at the intersection of race and sexuality?
By combining autobiographical accounts with qualitative and quantitative research on queer students of different racial backgrounds, these essays not only trouble the ways we think about the intersections of race and sexuality, they also offer theoretical insights and educational strategies to educators committed to bringing about change.

Kevin K. Kumashiro is assistant professor of education at Bates College.Review:
This is a critical anthology that stands as the first of its kind in that it deals with queer youths of color in articles written by, for, and about these young people within the context of education. (from the Foreword by Didi Khayatt, York University)
Kumashiro has orchestrated a revealing and illuminating account of both the problematic and contested social, political, and educational issues that many gay and straight students and educators confront in schools and society. Each chapter author disrupts silences and gives voice to important facets of school and college life that oppress queer students, such as curriculum, pedagogy, climate, staff, and identity formation. Collectively, the chapters become a powerful tool for understanding intersections of race and sexuality, and the impact of this intersection in the daily lives of students and teachers. (Carl A. Grant, author of “The Moment: Brack Obama, Jeremiah Wright and the Firestorm and Trinity United Church of Christ” (2013) (with Shelby Grant) and Editor of “Intersectionality and Urban Education” (2014) (with Elisabeth Zwier), Hoefs-Bascom Professor, University Wisconsin-Madison)
This anthology of essays is not only a worth read, but as an exceptional text on inclusion, diversity and haunted silelnces, it is a highly desirable read for the educators and researchers among us who accept the challenge to cross these troubling intersections. (Gender and Education)
