Achieving Real Equality: A Work in Progress for LGBT Youth in Spain
Galan, Jose Ignacio Pichardo; Puras, Belen Molinuevo; Riley, Robin L.
Journal of LGBT Youth, v6 n2-3 p272-287 2009
Although lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people have achieved a great level of legal equality in Spain, social equality is still to come, especially for adolescents. This article reports results from three different studies. The first, in 2005, using a multidisciplinary approach, confirmed that homophobia is present in secondary schools in Madrid. The second, in 2006, was a small survey of LGBT teenagers' on-line postings and internet interviews; and the third, conducted in 2007, analyzed more than 4500 questionnaires completed by high school student in two Spanish towns. Both studies showed that most Spanish teenagers still consider schools not a safe place for LGBT people. (Contains 6 tables and 9 notes.)
