Gay Students Raped, Attacked More Often Than Straight Peers

The Canadian Press, 11 Aug, 2016 11:47 AM
  • Gay Students Raped, Attacked More Often Than Straight Peers
NEW YORK — A new government study says gay, lesbian and bisexual high school students are far more likely than their classmates to be raped or assaulted in a dating situation.
 
The research also found gay teens were far more likely to have attempted suicide, taken illegal drugs and engaged in other risky behaviours.
 
The finding echoes results of smaller surveys and findings from advocacy groups, but it is the first nationally-representative government survey to look at the issues. About 15,600 students participated in the anonymous survey last year. About 8 per cent of them told researchers they were gay, lesbian or bisexual.
 
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released the survey report Thursday.
