Gay, Lesbian and Bisexual high school students report alarmingly high rate of violence by Shaun Knittel - SGN Associate Editor They say that you can judge the worth of a society from the behavior of its youth. If this is true then we are seriously lacking. CDC officials said the study was conducted 'to understand more about behaviors that can contribute to negative health outcomes among LGB students, a question to ascertain sexual identity and a question to ascertain the sex of sexual contacts was added for the first time to the national and standard Youth Risk Behavior Survey YRBS questionnaires. CDC analyzed data from the national survey conducted among more than 15, students in grades plus data from 25 state surveys, and 19 large urban school district surveys. In the report, sexual minority students were defined as those who identified themselves as Gay, Lesbian, or Bisexual; who had had sexual contact with only persons of the same sex; or who had had sexual contact with persons of both sexes. The analyses are possible due to the inclusion of two new questions about sex of sexual contacts and sexual identity on the National Youth Risk Behavior Survey YRBS.

Share via Email Queuing for the bar in a Soho gay club recently, I was surrounded by sweaty strangers spilling beer on my shoes and invading my personal space. Readying my elbow to nudge the gamine girl next to me, I suddenly realised that she was none other than a year-old friend of a friend of mine, Emma. She dragged me over to a group of pint-sized punks. We're seeing each other. My instinct was to haul her away, but I struggled to work out my emotions. It wasn't so much that Emma was now out and proud that concerned me, it was that she was out on the gay scene and, to quote Queer as Folk, was evidently "doing it - really doing it".
I have no question in my mind about being bisexual. But I'm also a hypocrite: I would never date a girl who was bisexual, because that means they also sleep with men, and men are so dirty that I'd never want to sleep with a girl who had slept with a man.
