Introduction/ Background: • 10% secondary students gay or lesbian, over 1/3rd had same-sex sexual experiences (Sears, 2005, p. xx). 1.7% students "born intersex" (Carroll, 2005b, p. 441). A growing number "transgender", "queer" (Carroll, 2005a; Rasmussen, 2006). • Media controversies: formals, toilet use, bullying suicides. • Education policy: end-goal of GLBTIQ youth research (Bochenek & Brown, 2001; Del'Angela, 2000; GLSEN, 2004; Russo, 2006; Hillier, Turner, & Mitchell, 2005; Hunt & Jensen, 2009; Ollis, 2007). • Seen as an "unproblematic good", yet the extent, content and usefulness of Australian education policies unknown. Research Question: Explore the usefulness of constructions of GLBTIQ students in the dominant discourses of Australian secondary schooling education policy. 1. Discourses? 2. Constructions? 3. Usefulness?
