NEW: The Parent, Educator & Youth Guide to LGBTQ Cyberbullying



NEW: The Parent, Educator & Youth Guide to LGBTQ Cyberbullying 

Cyberbullying and online harassment can be an issue for anyone. But it’s especially pernicious for young people who identify or are coming out as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or questioning (LGBTQ):
  • 52% of LGBTQ youth between the ages of 11 and 22 reported having been the targets of cyberbullying several times 
  • 55.5% of LGBTQ students across the United States felt unsafe at school based on their sexual identity
ConnectSafely's latest guide, The Parent, Educator & Youth Guide to LGBTQ Cyberbullying explores how parents, schools and peers can support LGBTQ students. Topics include: 
  • The risks and benefits of connected technology for LGBTQ youth
  • Steps educators can take to create a positive school climate 
  • Important advice for parents and teens
The guide was written by veteran LGBTQ activist and scholar Warren J. Blumenfeld, Ed.D., in collaboration with parents and other educators. It joins ConnectSafely’s guides to social media, fake news, student data privacy, cyberbullying, cybersecurity, Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook, ASKfm, Kik, After School and other topics, and is available to read or download for free at connectsafely.org/lgbtq.
