Broadening the minds of your teens & students

During the last session, and the previous one as well, we had discussions about working with teens in a conservative area and with some closed-minded ideals. In particular, Megan was having some issues with teens who were not open-minded about seeing gay teens in literature, and this was a big concern for her. Opening the minds of teens to be accepting of those who are different from them, teaching them to not be prejudiced or discriminate, and showing them the value of different worldviews is so important for anyone working with youth.

How do you do help teens keep an open mind?

What kinds of books, games, movies, or even news articles do you use to discuss these kinds of issues? 

How do you handle discussions of sexuality, race, poverty, or other difficult topics with your teens or in your classroom or library?
