Abstract In the last twenty-five years or so there has been an increasing acknowledgment of the importance of gay--and lesbian-affirmative material in both teacher-training and school curricula in Australia. However, the issues produced by those developments are still hotly contested and in this paper GLBTIQ educators reflect in their own words on the current obstacles and opportunities they face. In their discussions they explore their own personal experiences of 'breaking through' the hostility and anxiety that cordon off schools from queer sexualities and provide a snapshot of the day-to-day work of the GLBTIQ educator. The participants are, or have been, involved in teacher education at the University of Melbourne in a variety of roles.
