Author discusses a power of story as an effective response to students’ use of anti-LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer) language. Among other methods, she recommends the middle school theachers of English to use excerpts from young adult literature (YAL) and film, picture books, feature news articles, documentaries, and public service advertisements to help students acknowledge and confront hurtful, derogatory language and behavior.
