Growing up queer : issues facing young Australians who are gender variant and sexuality diverse / Professor Kerry H Robinson, Dr Peter Bansel, Dr Nida Denson, Dr Georgia Ovenden, Cristyn Davies.
Robinson, Kerry H., (author.)
This study has found that 16% of young people who identify as lesbian, gay, bi, trans, intersex or queer have attempted suicide and 33% have harmed themselves as a result of widespread homophobic and transphobic harassment and violence in Australian society. More than 1000 young people aged between 16–27 years of age participated in the national research study, with almost two-thirds reporting homophobic or transphobic harassment or violence across different aspects of their lives, including in schools, families, the workplace, the streets and other public sites, such as sporting events.The findings of this study highlight the serious impact that homophobia, transphobia and heteronormativity can have on the health and well being of young people who are gender variant or sexuality diverse.--Website.
