Summary

In 1997 an online survey of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender youth was conducted. The survey, which was available only on the Internet, was promoted through magazines and the World Wide Web. It contained more than 150 questions and took about half an hour to complete. Although all people accessing the web site were allowed to complete the survey, only surveys from respondents under 25 years old were used in the study. The questionnaire was designed to explore many areas of interest in the lives of homosexual, bisexual, and transgender youth, and included sections on: (1) general background; (2) about being queer; (3) the Internet; (4) school policies; (5) school groups; (6) school life; (6) sexual activity; (7) sexual health; (8) the media; (9) harassment; (10) suicide; (11) religion and spirituality; (12) "who I am"; (13) relationships; (14) community; and (15) the future. The Internet survey method allowed for possible sources of error, including falsification, the bias caused by Internet access, and bias introduced by the length of the survey. Although two-thirds of those who started it did not complete the survey, 3,061 complete surveys form the database. Survey data is now available to qualified scholars researching issues surrounding queer youth, social service, and government agencies working to set policy and determine priorities, and to authors who wish to make their needs more well-known. Data are available in a variety of formats. The survey and a summary of responses for each item are presented. (SLD)
