GLBT Youth in Crisis
The article reports on a survey of LGBT youth in the Dallas, TX area. It illustrates strongly the horrors of homophobia. Among the appalling statistics are the number who have attempted or contemplated suicide, the number kicked out of their homes, the number sexually or physically abused, the number beaten at school or called names because of their sexual orientation, and more.
