Abstract

Sexual minority groups begin to attract public attention in recent years because of a more civilized world which pays great attention to educational equity and multiculturalism. Compared to their heterosexual peers, LGBTQ youth are at higher risk to suffer from harassment and victimization at school, leave school without permission, abuse substances, and have suicidal attempts. Although there are serious programs and activities aimed to help LGBTQ students, the outcome is still not yet ideal due to all kinds of barriers encountered by educators in the helping process. It is high time that we figured out some feasible methods to help educators to combat these obstacles in order to better serve the needs of LGBTQ youth.
