Abstract:I draw on my own experiences as a straight feminist geographer to address questions regarding teaching sexualities in geography. First, I look at 'sexing' and 'queering' geography curricula, not only upper level undergraduate and graduate courses that lend themselves to discussions of sexualities, compulsory heterosexuality, and heterosexism, but also lower level undergraduate courses. Second, a sexual dissident's first self-disclosure to another person typically takes place in college. As such, I discuss strategies that aim to make universities and classrooms less heterosexist and lesbo/homophobic. Finally, I discuss my dilemmas around the disclosure of my sexuality in the context of teaching.
