LGBT Students of Color and Harassment

While all LGBT youth are victims of bullying, a past report conducted by the Gay, Lesbian Straight Education Network (GLSEN) found that kids of color are more vulnerable and impacted in numerous ways. More than 75 percent were called “fa---t” and “d-ke” on a regular basis; more than 70 percent heard sexist remarks; and almost 50 percent heard racist remarks at school.
