Report finds two thirds of LGBTQ students feel unsafe in high school


 

A new study shows that bullying against students who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans or queer (LGBTQ) is common in Canadian high schools. Of the 3,600 students surveyed 14 per cent identified as LGBTQ, 51 per cent of whom reported being subject to verbal insults related to their sexual orientation and two-thirds of whom reported that they felt unsafe at their schools. Seventy per cent of all those who participated in the study said they heard the phrase “that’s so gay” on a daily basis. The study was conducted by Egale Canada and the University of Winnipeg.
