Dancing With Mr. D: LGTB

“I spent much of my life steeped in power analysis theory and taking a look at serving groups who were marginalized within any hegemonic group,” Michael Way Skinner, the York Catholic District School Board’s coordinator of Religious Education, Family Life and Equity, told about 30 teachers attending his workshop, half of them identifying as Catholic. “So, I was quite comfortable taking on how we could serve our LGBTQ students in our schools.”
Skinner’s workshop, titled “Implementing LGBTTQQ Supports Under the Catholic School Board,” revealed how the process worked to make his board explicitly pro-LGBTQ.
