Estonia is a country with a complicated history, where democratic values and individual rights are held in high regards. However, these rights are not always extended to minority groups. This research analyses and documents the discrepancy between what is written in the official discourse about democratic values, discrimination, and equality, how these same notions are discussed in the educational discourse, and how that applies to and affects queer students. I apply a critical discourse analysis method to analyse the Estonian Constitution, Declaration of Human Rights, and European Union base documents in comparison to the Nation Curriculum of Estonia and a textbook of a Family Studies course. I use queer theory to analyse how these discourses relate to and affect queer students. The findings show that topics related to queer people are excluded from the curriculum revealing a discourse of heteonormativity, exclusion, and invisibility of queer students.
