Students in high school and middle school often struggle to fit in. For students who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered (LGBT), or Questioning (LGBTQ), fitting in can be especially difficult, and school is all too often an unwelcoming and unsafe place. Discrimination, harassment, and even violent bullying are common experiences for LGBT/LGBTQ students. Schools have a responsibility to ensure the safety of all students, and more and more state legislatures requiring schools to enact and enforce anti-bullying policies that include explicit protection of LGBT students

- LGBTQ 101 - Statistics, terminology, applicable legislation, and guidelines devised by professional educational organizations, including the National Education Association (NEA), the American School Counselor Association (ASCA), and the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP)
-Detailed recommendations of what schools and individual educators can do to welcome and support LGBTQ youth
-Information on nationally recognized organizations that offer extensive free resources, including materials targeted at educators/staff, the entire student body, LGBTQ students, and parents
