A survey of over 8,000 young LGBT people ages 13-20 shows a downward spiral of gay bullying.  According to the 2011 National School Climate Survey by the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network, gay bullying of students is down by significant numbers.

As you may know, bullying is a big problem all over the world, particularly among LGBT youth.  Unfortunately, many of them opt to kill themselves after feeling there is no escape from the constant harassment.  This survey shows some hope.  No one should be bullied for whatever reason and no one should take their life because of it.
