  • 99
    30
    18

    Of the LGBTQ students who witnessed or experienced bullying, 99% was verbal bullying, 30% was cyber bullying, and 18% was physical bullying.

  • LBGTQ?

    • L = Lesbian
    • B = Bi-sexual
    • G = Gay
    • T = Transgender
    • Q = Queer or Questioning
  • What Students Want:

    92%
    of all students surveyed

    felt secondary schools did not provide enough information and support around sexuality issues.

  • What Students Say:

    ‘I would have loved it if someone came to my school to speak to the students about being gay so it wouldn’t seem so threatening to the straight guys. People attack what they don’t understand…’
