GAY AND LESBIAN TEENS FACE MORE BULLYING
In the broadest study of bullying and sexual orientation to date, lesbian/gay adolescents were three to four times more likely to report having been bullied //than heterosexuals while bisexuals and those identifying as 'mostly heterosexual' were twice as likely, after adjustment for age and other factors.

Berlan and Austin hope to conduct a more detailed follow-up study to better understand how bullying affects health outcomes.
