Homophobic bullying drops at UK schools but suicides bids 'alarming': study

Homophobic bullying drops at UK schools but suicides bids 'alarming': study
- Stonewall's 2017 School Report questioned over 3,700 LGBT students and found one in five lesbian, gay and bisexual students have attempted suicide and two in five transgender pupils have tried to take their own lives.
Ruth Hunt, chief executive of Stonewall, said the group's third School Report showed progress had been made, with 45 percent of LGBT pupils reporting bullying compared to 65 percent in 2007 and 55 percent in 2012.
