Study: LGBT bullying does decline, albeit slowly

handflagBY ZACK FORD

new study on bullying among young people in England has found that it does, in fact, “get better” for gay, lesbian and bisexual youth. The study followed over 4,100 teens over the course of seven years and measured the rates at which they were bullied. According to the findings, LGB youth experience higher levels of bullying at age 13-14 than their heterosexual peers, but those rates decline over time at similar rates. At age 18-20, only gay and bi boys still reported distinctly higher rates of bullying and harassment than their heterosexual peers.
