What Lies Beneath the Surface?
In school everyone is assumed to be heterosexual, and the heteronorm affects what happens in both the teachers’ lounge and the classroom. What Lies Beneath the Surface? contains short film sequences, discussion questions and other material that can be used to make school a working environment where everyone is met with respect regardless of their sexual orientation.
