Queers have been part of the academy since its creation. Fear and institutional policies, however, have created constraints that have kept those academics from being their authentic selves. Our work attempts to document part of that process and bring voice to those scholars who refuse to let past be prelude to future. We are deeply honored to have amassed such brave and forthright scholars who honor us, the field, and each other to advance collective understanding and empathy toward those we work with in the academy, the students we serve, the colleagues with whom we interact, and those coming into and being mentored and apprenticed to serve within the academy. We hope these memoirs offer healing to those who have been traumatized by institutional neglect and overt abuse and hope to the now and future of all those beautiful souls currently in and coming into education.
