ANTI LGBTQ BULLYING

LGBT Youth Are:

•  Subjected to such intense bullying that they’re unable to receive an adequate education. They’re often embarrassed or ashamed of being targeted and may not report the abuse.

•  Two to three times more likely to attempt suicide than their heterosexual counterparts.

•  Twenty-eight percent of gay students will drop out of school. This is more than three times the national average for heterosexual students

•  Feel they have nowhere to turn. According to several surveys, four out of five gay and lesbian students say they don’t know one supportive adult at school.
