The results of the survey showed that half of LGBT young people feel unsafe in Lithuanian schools because of their sexual orientation and/or gender identity. LGL’s survey also revealed that only 5% of LGBT students have never experienced homophobic, biphobic or transphobic hate speech in educational settings.
