dc.description.abstractAs growing numbers of lesbian mother families enter the Australian education system, there comes with this an injunction to better include such families. The first step in such inclusion is to ensure that teachers are provided with knowledge about lesbian mother families that moves beyond simply refuting stereotypes, and toward acknowledgement of the specific experiences and needs of this family form. At the same time, however, it is important that educators, when attempting to include lesbian mothers and their children, do not reinstate new norms at the same time as challenging old stereotypes. The present paper reports on the development and application of a workshop aimed at providing education students at one South Australian university with a framework for understanding lesbian mother families that is critical of norms in all their forms, including amongst those who research lesbian mother families. It is suggested that the positive findings from the workshop may reflect the utility of challenging both heteronormativity and homonormativity in conjunction with one another so as to present students with a broadly critical approach to understanding sexuality education.en
