Vijlbrief, Afiah; Saharso, Sawitri; Ghorashi, Halleh – Journal of LGBT Youth, 2020
This qualitative study discusses the experienced identity of gender non-binary young adults. Despite growing positive discourse in the Netherlands toward gender minorities, in practice this group still faces exclusion and stigmatization of their identity. This article draws from Butler's (2004, 2011) conceptions of deconstructing the hegemonic…

Allen, Louisa – Journal of LGBT Youth, 2020
This paper is concerned with how teachers manage homophobia at school. It examines how they deal with homophobia directed at students, "and" instances when teachers become the recipients of homophobia themselves. This dual focus, on teachers as both the perpetrators and recipients of homophobia, adds complexity to existing studies…

Zmyj, Norbert; Huber-Bach, Lilo – Journal of LGBT Youth, 2020
Although same-sex marriages are legally recognized in many Western societies, prejudices against gay men and lesbians remain and already appear in adolescents. Since a negative attitude toward gay men and lesbians is likely to foster malevolent behaviors, we investigated predictors of homonegativity in adolescents aged between 14 and 16 years.…

Wishart, Madeline; Davis, Cassandra; Pavlis, Alexia; Hallam, Karen T – Journal of LGBT Youth, 2020
Research has consistently demonstrated that young people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or queer (LGBQ) show greater levels of psychosocial risk than general cohorts of young people.

Daniels, Joseph; Struthers, Helen; Maleke, Kabelo; Catabay, Christina; Lane, Tim; McIntyre, James; Coates, Tom – Journal of LGBT Youth, 2019
Low educational attainment, often a lack of a high school diploma or matriculation degree, has been linked to negative health outcomes and lower quality of life for sexual and gender minorities globally. However, optimism and resiliency have been demonstrated to provide buffering effects on school dropout. We conducted a study in a South African…

Zmyj, Norbert; Wehlig, Raphaela – Journal of LGBT Youth, 2019
Bullying against lesbian and gay adolescents continues to be a problem in Western societies. Interventions to reduce homonegative attitudes could help to address bullying. We evaluated the effectiveness of a workshop against homonegativity in adolescents (N = 214) aged between 14 and 16 years in a pretest, posttest, follow-up design with a control…

Clarke, Kyra; Cover, Rob; Aggleton, Peter – Journal of LGBT Youth, 2018
In popular and academic discourse, sexual identity is regularly linked to a concept of sexual engagement with others. Recent thinking on sexuality has, however, opened up the possibility of understanding 'identity' in ways different from sexual behaviour. This paper considers data from the Australian "Queer Generations" project, in which…

Sandretto, Susan – Journal of LGBT Youth, 2018
Teachers are obligated to construct an environment inclusive of "all" students. This article argues critical literacy with queer intent can offer strategies to expose normative constructions of gender and sexuality that can exclude some students. I initiate the case with a queer theory analysis of a description of critical literacy…
