Rebecca Haskell and Brian Burtch address harassment experienced by many queer youth during their high school years in Get That Freak: Homophobia and Transphobia in High Schools (Fernwood 2010). They draw on accounts from young adults in BC to identify resources used to combat homophobic and transphobic harassment and strategies for establishing safe spaces for queer high school youth.

Rebecca Haskell is a Queer feminist and trans ally. She holds a Masters degree in Criminology from Simon Fraser University. Upon publication, Haskell was employed by the BC Society of Transition Houses working to reduce barriers to support for women who experience violence and who have varying levels of mental wellness and substance use.
