Helen Jefferson Lenskyj was born in Sydney, Australia, and came to Canada in 1966. She received a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology in 1977, a Master of Arts in Education in 1980, and earned her PhD in Education in 1983. From 1986 to 2007, Lenskyj was a professor at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE), at the University of Toronto. She has been a teacher, an early childhood educator, and a community activist. Her research focuses on gender, sports, and sexualities.
Scope and Content
The fonds consists of records relating to Lenskyj’s involvement with the Toronto Board of Education and research in the areas of sexuality, gender, sports, AIDS, health and sex education, and homophobia. Included in the fonds are correspondence, memoranda, reports, notes, pamphlets, newspaper and magazine clippings, press coverage on Gay Games, research papers, resources and information on sexual health mainly for youth and parents, and other textual records.

Other materials included in the fonds are buttons, videocassettes, audiocassettes, optical disks, and a photograph.
