Handbook: Supporting Queer and Trans Students in Art and Design Education In March 2018, OCAD U’s Office of Diversity, Equity & Sustainability Initiatives (ODESI) released Handbook: Supporting Queer and Trans Students in Art and Design Education. The guide draws from anti-oppressive education models to enable educators to unlearn and critically address oppression on the basis of race, gender and sexuality, and transform their understanding of how to support queer and transgender students in the studio, classroom, and beyond. Handbookwas created by the Queer Publishing Project, an active research group of over 100 students, former students, alumni, staff and faculty at OCAD U. ODESI provided mentoring and project support to produce the publication, alongside faculty member Anthea Black and printmaking technician Nick Schick. Copies of the Handbook are available through faculty offices and OCADSU.
