Study: LGBT Youth Face High Levels of Cyberbullying

A new study from the Gay, Lesbian, & Straight Education Network (GLSEN) released on Wednesday takes a wide-ranging look at the experiences of LGBT youth online. The study found that LGBT youth experience high levels of bullying and harassment online, at much higher rates than their non-LGBT peers. It also found, however, that the LGBT youth use the Internet at high rates to access resources and support, as well as for increased civic and political engagement.
