The Homophobic Teaching Booklet is a small photocopied publication which was distributed to all of Edinburgh's primary schools in 1999. The booklet was sent along with an introductory letter explaining that this was a pilot publication which was to raise discussion amongst the teaching staff about Clause 28, the controvertial legislation which restricted the "promotion of homosexuality" by local authorities. A colouring-in-book set of homophobic alphabet illustrations and a questionnaire about homophobia in schools accompanied the booklet.

The replies were displayed in The Hairpin Drop In Center at the Collective Gallery.

A second edition (50) of the booklet (signed and numbered) was produced for EAST International in 2000.
