Gay Lesbian Straight Educators Network

GLSEN knows that supportive educators like you can make a big difference in how LGBT students experience their school’s climate.

GLSEN

"Through our research and programs we know that supportive policies make lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) students feel safer and more affirmed, and increases their chances of staying in school and succeeding."


It is our goal at HCSD that all students succeed. Let's make it happen together.

LGBTQ Teen Suicide Statistics: Shouldn't we help them?

LGBT teenagers are two or three times more likely to attempt suicide than other teens (stopbullying.gov). If the family of the LGBT youth does not accept them, they are eight times more likely to commit suicide than other teens. One-third of the suicide attempts that actually result in death are due to a crisis in sexual identity. LGBT youth miss more than five times as much school as other students because of bullying they receive at school. 28% of LGBT youth stop going to school because of being bullied (makebeatsnotbeatdowns.org).
