This chapter begins with a brief sociohistorical review of the transformational history of the LGBT community in Spain and the situation of sexual minorities in the educational system before presenting the results of a study conducted in 2013, which focused on the language and attitudes of students and teachers toward non-heterosexuality and gender-nonconformity in Spain. The central focus of the research was teachers’ attitudes toward sexual diversity in schools and their responses when exposed to homophobic and/or transphobic bullying. The chapter ends with a discussion of the present situation for LGBT students in the education system in Spain and a list of best practices coming from teachers, schools, trade unions, students, and their families.
