Abstract:     
In this paper the author investigates the reach and potential of “the law” to transform school culture for queer youth. In particular, the author looks at ways in which the law offers, arguably, the best present and future challenge confronting the work that needs to be done in the queering of Canadian schools. From a Canadian legal perspective and tradition, this confrontation is represented in the clash between equality rights claims grounded in sexual orientation, on the one hand, and religion-based claims on the other.
