Discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity concerns
everybody, but it is foremost lesbian and gay persons who have to deal
with it, especially when confronting the discovery of their homosexuality
as a child or adolescent.

In this book, practitioners working with youth and researchers from
social, political and educational sciences, theology and philosophy raise
awareness of the spectrum of homophobia and offer solutions to the
suffering it engenders in youths.

The book is helpful for parents, teachers and others who are responsible
for youth and education. It reviews concrete knowledge, combines it with
scientific approaches and identifies need for further research.

Dr. habil. Michael Groneberg is teacher and researcher in Philosophy and
Gender Studies (in particular on masculinities and sexuality) at the
universities of Lausanne and Fribourg (Switzerland).

Christian Funke (M. A. phil.) is researcher in Philosophy and currently
Ph. D. student at the university of Münster (Germany).
