Jeff has a chapter in this just-released Queer Voices From The Locker Room by editors Cu-Hullan Tsuyoshi McGivern and Paul Chamness Miller.  The editors intended for this volume to provide queer and ally athletes a space to have a voice and share the experiences that have been significant in thier identity as an athletic member of the LGBT+ community.  To that end, this book is a collection of autobiographical short stories of LGBT+ athletes and their experiences in sports and athletics.  Jeff wrote a chapter specifically for the physical education majors in his teacher credential courses.  The chapter - A Sissy Speaks To Gym Teachers:  How I Was Formed And Deformed By Toxic Masculinity - is a personal narrative of bullying and suggests three simple ways that adults can be with children to inspire fitness-as-a-way-of-life.  It is available for order.
