Summary

The Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) conducted a survey of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender students affiliated with local youth service organizations around the United States. A total of 496 youth from 32 states completed the survey fully. Over 90% reported that they sometimes or frequently hear homophobic remarks in their school, and almost all reported hearing these remarks from other students. The majority (69%) reported experiencing some form of harassment or violence, and 13.7% reported experiences of physical assault. Nearly half (two of five) did not feel safe in school, and over one third did not feel comfortable speaking to school staff about issues related to lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender status.
