This video series includes most of the short video talks that are part of California State University, Fullerton's College of Extended Education's professional development course for educators, "Understanding and Addressing LGBT and Gender-Based Bullying." The readings and films that are part of this course are not included here. More information on this groundbreaking CSUF course, including how to enroll, can be found here: http://extension.fullerton.edu/professionaldevelopment/bullying
The videos in this Vimeo channel will give you insight into the cause and effects of bullying. Gender identity, gender expression and perceived gender expression, along with sexual orientation and perceived sexual orientation, play a significant role in most cases of bullying, however, this role is seldom discussed. The many students, attorneys, academics, educators, parents and others that you will meet in this series will give you tools through which to understand the complexities of gender, biological sex and sexuality and, how rigid norms around these identity categories potentially create school cultures where all students lose out. They also discuss the legal obligations of educators under California Education Code and federal Title IX legislation. The last 5 videos in the series discuss the needs and rights of transgender and intersex students from a medical, sociological and legal perspective. These powerful ideas can transform educational institutions from places where difference, in all its myriad forms, moves from something tolerated, to celebrated. And, in environments where difference is celebrated, all students win.
NOTE: We recommend that you watch the videos in the order they are listed here. This will ensure that you see Dr. Ketchum's introductory talk to each of the course themes, allowing the ideas presented to build upon themselves.
