Homophobia leads to bullying which has large consequences on everyone involved; Homophobic bullying is a big problem across the country. It leads to people not feeling safe ,depression, anxiety and in some cases suicide.

“31.8% of LGBT students missed at least one entire day of school in the past month because they felt unsafe or uncomfortable.” (PACER). This was a study done by the anti bullying organization PACER. this study shows that LGBT kids do not feel safe in school because of homophobic bullying.

“The stresses experienced by LGBT youth also put them at greater risk for depression, substance abuse”. this is a shivering statistic. this shows that at risk LGBT teen also not only have to deal with bullying every day but now even if they find refuge they will still take something away from there experience.

"The rate of suicide attempts is 4 times greater for LGBT youth" This is the most scary statistic of all not only is bullying effecting teens in just pain and lasting pain it can even cause death.

Now think do you want this effecting kids any-longer?. if you dont take action to help these kids.
