Abstract The aim of the current essay is to present an innovative - considering the Greek academic research interests - study of the intriguing case of homosexual educators, using their own personal narrations and the narrations of heterosexual educators. Emphasis was given on the way that homosexual educators are being conceived within the educational context, and also on the way that they experience and manage their homosexual identity regarding their workplace and their everyday life reality. In addition, we examined the evolutionary changes in the experience and management of homosexual identity of educators, resulting in the construction and maintenance of hidden (covert) sexual identities within the educational context. The research procedure that we employed in this study involves qualitative methodological approaches and methods of research such as the method of focus group, semi-structured clinical interview, biographical-narrative interview, ichnographical and metaphorical methods of representation. For our research goals we designed and accomplished six phases of research, through which we used four participants for the sample of homosexual educators and four for the sample of heterosexual educators. The first phase of research demanded the exclusive participation of heterosexual educators who were invited in a group interview in the means of the focus group method, and were asked to negotiate issues of sexuality and homosexuality within the educational context, focusing on the topic of homosexual educators. The next five phases of research concerned the individual participation of homosexual participants in the other research methods that we used. They were asked to discuss issues of sexuality, homosexuality and also conception, meaning-making experience, management and evolutionary change regarding their homosexual identity in educational and other social, familial and interpersonal contexts and ultimately represent their experience and management of homosexual identity using an evolutionary perspective. Moving on to the procedure of analysis and interpretation of the research data, we attempt to highlight the conservative, ethicological perspective that heterosexual educators preserve, in relation to issues of sexuality and homosexuality, which promotes the construction of a policy of silence and restrain (policy known as Don‟t ask don‟t tell) on the case of homosexual identities in educational contexts. In addition, we bring to the surface and shed light on the personal life stories of homosexual educators and also on the way they feel, behave and conceive their own self and others regarding their educational-professional and personal level of life. We also draw on observations concerning the evolutionary construction and maintenance of a hidden-constrained sexual identity which constitutes the reaction against the strict, constraining, conservative educational and other social contexts of Greek society. Key words: Case study, Experience and Management of homosexual identity, Hidden sexual identities, Homosexual Educators, Narratives, Qualitative research, Sexuality in Education, Sexual stereotypes.
