Stonewall has published research into the experiences of lesbian, gay, bi and trans (LGBT) pupils in Britain’s schools. Findings from an online survey of 3,713 LGBT young people aged 11-19 include: 45% are bullied for being LGBT – this is down from 55% in 2012 and 65% in 2007; 45% of LGBT pupils who are bullied for being LGBT never tell anyone about the bullying; 9% of trans pupils are subjected to death threats at school; more than four in five trans young people have self-harmed, as have three in five lesbian, gay and bi young people who aren’t trans.
