La fille qui rêvait d'embrasser Bonnie Parker.

Isabelle Gagnon, préfacé par Annie Desrochers, animatrice de l'émission de Radio-Canada Ados radio, 2010.

Les Éditions du remue-ménage sont fières d'annoncer la parution de leur dernier roman pour les jeunes, qui raconte une histoire d'amour entre deux filles d'Isabelle Gagnon, préfacé par Annie Desrochers, animatrice de l'émission de Radio-Canada Ados radio.

Le thème de l'homosexualité au féminin a été peu abordé dans la littérature pour la jeunesse au Québec. De façon générale, les lesbiennes sont peu visibles et donc, peu de modèles sont proposés aux jeunes filles.

Le livre La fille qui rêvait d'embrasser Bonnie Parker sera dans les librairies le 17 mai prochain, Journée internationale contre l'homophobie que de nombreux groupes, ici et ailleurs, soulignent par diverses activités afin de sensibiliser la population aux effets dévastateurs des paroles et des actes homophobes, surtout pour les jeunes.

Pour agir contre l'homophobie, nous vous proposons de parler de ce livre autour de vous, aux jeunes que vous rencontrez, à vos collègues, à vos ami-e-s, dans vos familles, au personnel scolaire d'écoles secondaires, etc.

Ulysse et Alice
Ariane Bertouille, 2006.

LGBT Family Coalition
Édition du remue-ménage


Ulysse et Alice is the first French-language book in Quebec, available for children, about a boy with two same-sex parents. For children 4-8 years old, this story shows that even though families come in all different shapes and size, on an everyday level they're really very similar. The book is a useful tool for teaching diversity to very young children. It is accompanied by a teachers' guide in both English and French.

La virilité en jeu: perception de l'homosexualité masculine par les garçons adolescents.
Janik Bastien Charlebois (2011)

Les comportements homophobes de plusieurs garçons sont-ils inévitables? Pourquoi bon nombre d'entre eux se font-ils les persécuteurs des jeunes gais ou de ceux qui sont soupçonnés de l'être? À partir d'entrevues réalisées auprès de garçons adolescents, Janik Bastien Charlebois tente de comprendre ces attitudes d'intolérance et de rejet envers les hommes homosexuels.

Gender and Sexual Diversity in Schools.
Elizabeth J. Meyer (2010)

Issues related to gender and sexual diversity in schools can generate a lot of controversy, with many educators and youth advocates under-prepared to address these topics in their school communities. This text offers an easy-to-read introduction to the subject, providing readers with definitions and research evidence, as well as the historical context for understanding the roots of bias in schools related to sex, gender, and sexuality. Additionally, the book offers tangible resources and advice on how to create more equitable learning environments. Topics such as working with same-sex parented families in elementary schools; integrating gender and sexual diversity topics into the curriculum; addressing homophobic bullying and sexual harassment; advising gay-straight alliances; and supporting a transgender or gender non-conforming student are addressed. The suggestions offered by this book are based on recent research evidence and legal decisions to help educators handle the various situations professionally and from an ethical and legally defensible perspective.

Gender, Bullying and Harassment: Strategies to End Sexism and Homophobia in Schools.
Elizabeth J. Meyer (2009)

While there have been countless studies bullying and harassment in schools, none have examined the key gender issues related to these behaviors. In her new book, Meyer does just that and offers readers tangible and flexible suggestions to help them positively transform the culture of their school and reduce the incidences of gendered harassment. The text features sections that speak specifically to administrators, teachers, counselors, student leaders, and community and family members
