School Experiences of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Youth
Holmes, Sarah E.; Cahill, Sean
Journal of Gay & Lesbian Issues in Education, v1 n3 p53-66 2004
Gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender (GLBT) youth are coming out at younger ages, but schools have not changed as fast as the culture, leaving many youth isolated and at risk of violence and harassment. For GLBT youth of color, these problems are exacerbated by racism and the risk of rejection by their ethnic community. Children of GLBT parents are also commonly targeted and harassed by peers. Often ignored or underplayed, however, are the strength, resiliency, and extensive self-advocacy of GLBT youth. This essay summarizes what is known to date about the school experiences of GLBT youth.
