To fight homophobia in schools in Québec, many teachers rely on community organizations such as the Groupe de Recherche et d’Intervention Sociale (Research and Social Intervention Group) to address sexual diversity in class.

The authors present how GRIS leaders decided to adapt intervention practices following such findings.
