STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

The International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Friends (ILGBTQF) Professional Learning Network (PLN) is a global community of English language education professionals who are Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, or "Friends." We are practitioners and academics, producers and consumers of educational research, who affirm and respect the diverse sexual and gender identities of English Language students, teachers, and teacher trainers by seeking to foster learning environments free of bigotry, prejudice, and violence. Our work manifests TESOL International Association’s commitment to non-discrimination and aligns with its core values. It fulfills TESOL’s mission of advancing the quality of English language teaching in a number of ways, including advancing the availability of knowledge about the experiences of LGBTQ educators and students through research; developing resources and tools to enable TESOL members to engage in advocacy for LGBTQ educators and learners; incorporating relevant research into TESOL professional training and teaching materials; and providing a positive member experience for TESOL members regardless of sexuality or gender identity.
