Did you know that 7.6 percent of GLBTQ (Gay, Lesbian, Bi-Sexual, Transgender, and Questioning) students felt unsafe at school because of their sexual orientation, and 43% because of their gender expression? GLBTQ youth are four times more likely to attempt suicide, experience suicidal thoughts, or engage in self-haring behaviors than their straight peers. The GLBTQ community is about three times more likely than others to experience a mental health condition such as major depression or generalized anxiety disorder.
