The newest journal from Harrington Park/Haworth Press, JGLED wants to bring together disparate "voices and discourses." In the premier issue, editor James Sears writes, "For too long practitioners, policy makers, and scholars have inhabited different worlds, spoke[n] in unrelated tongues, and read dissimilar journals. JGLED seeks to bridge these divides while committing itself to multicultural and international coverage." The internationalism is evident in this very issue in the inclusion of four chapters, translated for the first time, from a book on sexuality issues in Japanese schools.
Also in volume 1, number 1: "The Angel's Playground: Same-Sex Desires of Physical Education Teachers" (Heather Sykes); "Serving the Needs of Transgendered College Students" (Brett Beemyn); "It's Elementary in Appalachia: Helping Prospective Teachers and Their Students Understand Sexuality and Gender" (Patti Capel Swartz); and feature sections titled "Exemplary Programs, Projects, Policies, and Classroom Practices" and "Net Nanny Untangles the Web" ("devised as an antidote to those who seek to sanitise the web and censor discussion of all things queer in educational settings").
