    Poetry. LGBT Studies. "About 'it gets better,' they were never
    wrong, the path-forgers, the ground-breakers. How it gets better
    is another question, for a new century has brought changing
    minds, but also new hardships. That is why this extraordinary
    book matters. Teaching is such a sacred office, and we who teach
    today know the attentiveness that must be brought to the
    profession. These poems track, record, memorialize, and meditate
    on that office. There are poems of the student one lost, the
    student who reached out at last, of the daily commitment that
    teaching who you are requires, of why it matters. There is
    nothing like this thoughtful collection of trenchant, witty,
    poignant, blunt, and luminous poems on the art of teaching by
    LGBTIQ poets assembled with judicious vision by Megan Volpert.
    THIS ASSIGNMENT IS SO GAY is a beautiful and necessary book, not
    just for teaching, but for us all."—Cynthia Hogue
