Stats & Facts

THERE IS SO MUCH MORE WORK THAT NEEDS TO BE DONE

IT WILL ONLY GET BETTER IF

If every child learns and understands a more honest history, then our society will begin to heal the pathology that is in large part responsible for the staggering statistics relating to LGBTQ youth and homelessness, suicidality, risk behaviors and drop out rates. Including the history and voices of those who reflect various expressions of gender and sexual orientation within the discussions and teachings of our nation’s classrooms will have enormous impact. Learning and understanding this history, as it relates to the development of our nation and world, will dispel myths and misperceptions and create safer schools and communities for everyone.

Recognition of this need is just the beginning. Most likely, teachers haven’t learned LGBTQ history within their own academic experience; therefore, HUE’s exceptional professional learning and development training is tantamount in importance to the development of HUE’s K-12 LGBTQ Academic Inquiry Series for core subjects. By teaching the educators first, and providing them with exceptional LGBTQ inclusive academic content, the most educative and empowering experience will be afforded to all students.

STAGGERING STATISTICS:

1 in 5 LGBTQ youth of color attempt suicide

45% of homeless youth identify as LGBTQ

82% of LGBTQ youth report being bullied

 


LGBTQ YOUTH ARE . . .

30% more likely to drop out of school

40% more likely to engage in risk behaviors

60% more likely to skip school
