HRC identifies key struggles for gay youth in groundbreaking survey
“Despite many civil rights advances, today’s LGBT youth are still members of the only minority group ‘born into an enemy camp,’ subject to family and community disapproval and animus rather than loving support,” said Jack Dreshcer, MD of the American Psychiatric Association and New York Medical College. “The HRC survey’s findings present significant challenged to families, educators, clergy, mental health professionals, policy makers and government officials concerned about the well-being of LGBT youth.”
The survey also found that despite the fact that 90 percent of respondents are out to close friends, 42 percent say the community they live in is not LGBT friendly.
