Sexualities in the field of early childhood remains an abstract concept for some, yet for others it is a reality experienced from the moment one prepares to enter the field. Using a narrative ethnography, which calls for the voice of the 'researcher' and 'participant' to be made visible, this paper explores sexualities in early childhood from the perspective of one lesbian early childhood preservice teacher who must negotiate her identity within the location of university studies and early childhood placement. The paper concludes with recommendations on ways for queer teacher education to support preservice teachers entering the early childhood field.
