To address gaps in the literature on bisexual youth, we used the first nationally representative sample of high school students from the United States to determine profiles of behaviors related to depressive symptoms, a suicide attempt, and a medically-serious attempt.

Clarke, Kyra; Cover, Rob; Aggleton, Peter – Journal of LGBT Youth, 2018
In popular and academic discourse, sexual identity is regularly linked to a concept of sexual engagement with others. Recent thinking on sexuality has, however, opened up the possibility of understanding 'identity' in ways different from sexual behaviour. This paper considers data from the Australian "Queer Generations" project, in which…

Sandretto, Susan – Journal of LGBT Youth, 2018
Teachers are obligated to construct an environment inclusive of "all" students.

Spencer, Leland G.; Patterson, G – Journal of LGBT Youth, 2017
Sexual and gender minorities have long quibbled over whether the "LGBT" moniker (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) is inclusive enough. While we celebrate the proliferation of sexual and gender identities, we also believe that this ever-expanding moniker has become an alibi for disavowing institutional violence--particularly in higher…

Leonardi, Bethy – Journal of LGBT Youth, 2017
Using queer theories of sexuality and gender, this study centers on "coming out" stories of ten queer adults. Engaging Butler's heterosexual matrix (1990) as an analytic tool, stories are analyzed with respect to agency and positioning. Findings suggest that participants' positioning and agency were largely affected by gender identity…

This study centers on the experiences of 13 individuals who all came out with…
