In this episode of Justice Vs., we take a look into the classroom and speak with organizer Becky McFarlane to describe the fight for LGBTQ2S+ inclusion and why queer visibility is so critical for youth.  Later, we speak with Kyle McGiverin, a teacher who uses his position as an educator to  normalize queer experiences and produce a queer-inclusive school environment.
