LGBT youth at school: being threatened by heteronormative oppression
Dr. Judit Takács

Summary:  This paper will focus on barriers preventing LGBT youth from successful social integration in school. The empirical base of this paper is an original survey research conducted by the ILGA-Europe and IGLYO social exclusion research team in 2006. From the individual responses of young LGBT people (collected from 37 European countries) similar patterns of social exclusion emerged, indicating that among the main agents of socialisation school can be an especially problematic social context for LGBT youth to fit into.
