Sandretto, Susan – Journal of LGBT Youth, 2018
Teachers are obligated to construct an environment inclusive of "all" students.

Spencer, Leland G.; Patterson, G – Journal of LGBT Youth, 2017
Sexual and gender minorities have long quibbled over whether the "LGBT" moniker (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) is inclusive enough.

Findings suggest that participants' positioning and agency were largely affected by gender identity…
