New Stonewall resource launched - Celebrating bi students in secondary schools
Stonewall have launched their new resource today (24th April) – Celebrating bi inclusion in secondary schools.
According to a 2016 survey carried out by the Office of National Statistics, 1.8 per cent of 16-24 year-olds identified as bi, and in a 2015 YouGov poll, 43 per cent of 18-25 year-olds chose something other than ‘100% heterosexual’ or ‘100% homosexual’ when asked about their sexuality.
The School Report 2017 shows that the specific experiences of bi students are often overlooked or assumed to be exactly the same as those of gay and lesbian students. It also found that more than a third of respondents ‘frequently’ or ‘often’ hear biphobic language, and that 35 per cent of bi students are bullied at school for being LGBT. Over two thirds of bi students have deliberately harmed themselves.
This guide gives schools useful tips to tackling biphobia and bi erasure, and practical ideas to better support their bi students.
