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.

Homophobic and transphobic bullying, through teasing, physical violence, and other forms of aggression, is a problem that affects lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender students at all levels of education.

This study interrogates the effects of an experiential learning activity…
