The LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer) Community has established its identity and acceptance in the past few years through the advocacy of Gender Equality. The study aims to recognize the challenges facing LGBTQ pre-service teachers and how they navigate their teaching experience. In terms of the following areas, the study aimed to define the barriers faced by LGBTQ pre-service teachers: Access to assets, Practices and Participation, Beliefs and Perceptions and Institutions, Laws, and Policies. In their community and education, the respondents encountered general prejudice, but such experiences did not hinder their ability to follow their dreams or fulfill their duties as pre-service teachers.
