Heterosexism exists throughout Canadian society, but to what degree is it present in classrooms? In this article, I explore this question through content analysis of twenty francophone Quebec secondary-school textbooks, examining how sexuality and relationships are discussed in five different subjects. These texts are persistently and overwhelmingly heterosexist: 95 per cent of pages discussing sexuality or relationships make no reference to same-sex sexuality or same-sex relationships, and 80 per cent of references that do occur appear in a negative context. Heterosexism in textbooks is not an isolated phenomenon, however, but part of a larger process of institutionalised heterosexism and homophobia.
