Construire des minorités sexuelles et de genre dans les écoles étasuniennes : Contours et limites du safe space comme stratégie anti-discriminatoire

Abstract : This article focuses on educational policies for gender and sexual diversity in the United-States. From an analysis of several documents produced by the GLSEN (gay, lesbian, straight educational network) and of legal material, I show that these policies are centered on the notion of safe space. They aim at reducing sexual and gender minority students’ vulnerability to bullying and harassment and improving their experience in schools by implementing anti-harassment and non-discrimination procedures and favoring LGBT recognition and affirmation measures. If such safe spaces improve student’ security and sense of safety, they run the risk of depoliticizing and reinforcing groups boundaries by focusing on students’ emotional and intellectual comfort and concealing other types of domination.
