Abstract
Two Spirit, transgender, intersex, non-binary, and gender non-conforming (2STING) teachers face significant additional stress in their careers. Research shows intolerable conditions for many teachers, even those in states with long-standing anti-discrimination policies in place. Educators reported experiencing harassment at work, hostile colleagues, hostile families, and doxing and social media bullying. Twenty-five percent of participants interviewed for a recent study had left their careers in education within a month of the study completion. Transgender and gender-diverse educators reported shocking rates of non-suicidal self-injury, suicidal ideation, and suicide attempts. All learning communities must change the culture surrounding these issues to help keep our LGB and 2STING educators and students alive.
