The introduction of legislative structures for same-sex relationships provides a new lens for grappling with the politics of sexuality in schools and society. The emergence of civil partnership and same-sex marriage in Ireland brings to the fore international debates around public intimacy, religion in the public sphere, secularism and the politics of sexuality equality. Building on queer, feminist and affect theory in innovative ways, this book offers insight into the everyday negotiations of LGBT-Q teachers as they operate between and across the intersecting fields of education, religion and LGBT-Q politics. Neary illustrates the complexity of negotiating personal and professional identities for LGBT-Q teachers.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Neary's engaging book takes up teachers' everyday affects as they become legitimate sexual citizens in the complex terrain of Irish schools. The book draws on attachment, fantasy, and gratefulness to conceptualize the ambivalent promises of `appropriateness' in social and institutional relationships. It's a timely intervention into debates about normalization and queer liberalism." - Susan Talburt, Georgia State University.
