Multicultural GLBTIQ people often face homophobia from their own families and ethnic communities as:
* Homosexuality is seen as a result of Western influence, creating the widespread perception that being GLBTIQ is in direct opposition to one's cultural identity.
Australian media attention to rural GLBTIQ students has been generated by a range of activists' efforts; notably including the recent launch of a book on one gay man's decision to drive around in a truck to remote, rural and regional (3) Australian schools combatting homophobia through informal interventions (Witthaus, 2014).
Whilst international research--mainly from the US--has considered gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender (GLBT) adults from rural areas to a small extent (Drumheller & McQuay, 2010; Fisher, Irwin & Coleman, 2013; Lee & Quam, 2013), research on younger rural GLBTIQ people is lacking (Gray, 2009).
Albin wanted to simply "document everyday life for the GLBTIQ community in Kansas." Through hearing these stories Albin became an "active listener," which to her means to "respect what they are saying and really trying to understand it." She feels that becoming an active listener has made her a better librarian and that she can now serve students on a deeper level.
