Tara: Growing up, if you think about the curriculum, was there much representation of queer families or queer youth and kids?
Dan: Not really, no.
Chantale: No, there’s definitely a lack of that representation of that, gender -- of that gender being even a thing, you know? It’s always just the two boxes, right? They’ll never show everything in between. Um, and I even find within the different family dynamics like, we’re now showing in schools different family dynamics like single family homes.
Chantale: And children that have divorced parents and that’s being shown now and if you think about-- if I think back to when I was a kid, we weren’t talking about that and now we are.
Tara: Right, right
Chantale: But we’re still not talking about you may have two moms. You may have dads. You may have a transgendered brother, sister, mother, father, you know, aunt, uncle, whatever. You know that is still not being show, um. I feel like we’re starting to get some awareness that it’s there and we want it to be accepted. But I always get a “well we’ll accept it, but let’s not talk about it too much”.
