Today I promoting a few facts of awareness related to LBGTQ teens and violence
DID YOU KNOW THAT LBG TEENS….
10% were threatened or injured with a weapon on school property
34% were bullied on school property
28% were bullied electronically
23% of LGB students who had dated or went out with someone during the 12 months before the survey had experienced sexual dating violence in the prior year
18% of LGB students had experienced physical dating violence
18% of LGB students had been forced to have sexual intercourse at some point in their lives.*
Our civil rights, our human rights, should never be limited to one moment or day. Our love and respect for one another should be shown every day.
Are you or someone you love identify (or questioning) as LBGTQ? Are you an Ally, like myself? I’d love to hear what you need from Allies! Please take a second to fill out this form, snap a pic, and send it to me! #MyAllies
Happy Month of Love, everyone!
