Owning His Gay Identity -- at 15 Years Old: Youths Coming Out Sooner, but Protections Against Harassment Lag

Date: July 14, 2008
Author: Theresa Vargas
QUOTE: Later that year, that boy called him an anti-gay slur. When Saro ran to tell the teacher, according to a letter his parents wrote to the school, he was told: "Well, you act like one, so you should be used to it by now." While children are coming out younger, studies show that they are doing so in schools where staff members have received little training in the area, where their fellow students use such language as "That's so gay" every day to express dislike, and where anti-bullying policies often don't exist or don't specifically protect students on the basis of sexual orientation.
