Christine is completing her book, Gay Teacher: A Story about Love, Hate and Lessons Yet to be Learned. Gay Teacher is the first book to tell the compelling story about Gerry Crane, a gay high school music teacher in Byron Center, Michigan, who was outed by a student, harassed, ostracized by parents and educators and eventually forced to resign. He was a role model for his students and an excellent music teacher who lost his job and career because of LGBTQ-based discrimination. Crane’s ordeal was covered by Time magazine and the television show 20/20. Along with Crane's story, Gay Teacher also addresses the current climate for LGBTQ teachers.
