What Parents Want 2022

What Parents Want is a verbatim theatre script, co-written with Australian colleagues Tania Ferfolja and Jackie Ullman. The script features the voices of parents of gender and sexuality diverse young people describing what they would like teachers and principals to do to ensure their children are expected, welcomed and successful at school.
The script is based on interviews with parents undertaken as part of Tania and Jackie’s The Gender and Sexuality Diversity in Schools Project which examined parents’ views on inclusive gender and sexuality education for K-12 public school students.
