New United Nations Campaign Takes Aim At Anti LGBTQ Bullying

Lesbian, gay, bi, trans and intersex (LGBTI) youth – and others perceived as gender non-conforming – rank amongst those most likely to report being taunted and attacked at school, at home and on social media. A quarter of children in the U.S. are affected by bullying, and that percentage is tripled for LGBT youth. Data from other countries tells a similar story: in Thailand, more than half of LGBT-identifying students reported being bullied in the past month alone. In Serbia, 60 per cent of high school children surveyed thought violence against gay students was “justified”, and 13 per cent admitted to having beaten up someone they thought to be gay.
