Tara Goldstein

Writer, Playwright, Theatre Creator

Welcome to my website.  I am the author and editor of books and plays that work to create dialogue around racism, anti-Semitism, cis-heteronormativity and settler colonialism, particularly in schooling.

My book Our Children are Your Students, which reports on the various tactics that LGBTQ families use to work with schools that don’t anticipate the arrival of their families and children, has won a 2022 CHOICE award for Outstanding Academic Title. Choice is a publishing unit of the Association of College and Research Libraries, a division of the American Library Association.

I am also the Artistic Director of Gailey Road Productions, an independent, Toronto-based theatre company where research meets theatre and theatre meets research.  

Raised in Montreal, I have lived in Toronto since 1985 where I work as a professor at the Ontario Institute of Studies for Education.  I am the current Vice Principal of New College at the University of Toronto.
