The Problems LGBT Youth Face

9 Jun

Today, the Human Rights Campaign released a new study analyzing the experiences of LGBT youth and found compelling evidence that the stigma and bullying they experience interrupts their ability to focus on their education and careers. Here are some of the compelling findings: LGBT youth describe the “most important problem” in their lives as “non-accepting families” (26 percent), “school/bullying problems” (21 percent), and “fear of being out or open (18 percent), while non-LGBT youth were more concerned with “classes/exams/grades” (25 percent), “college/career” (14 percent), and “financial pressures related to college or job” (11 percent).
