As an organization who’s mission is rooted in speaking up for those who are unable and helping change the social climate for LGBTQ+ people we feel that the GLSEN National School Climate Survey is an immeasurable important way to be able to help our youth speak up for their safety and well being.
By completing the 2019 National School Climate Survey you can help GLSEN inform education policymakers and the public about what’s really going on in our nation’s schools.
If you attended high school or middle school at any time during the 2018-2019 school years and identify as LGBTQ+ and are atleast 13 years old, GLSEN wants to hear about your experiences at school. The survey is completely anonymous and you did not have to complete the entire school year to participate.
You will be asked questions about your experiences in school, including being exposed to homophobic remarks, being harassed because of your sexual orientation or gender expression and how supportive your school is of LGBTQ students.

“The National School Climate Survey is a biennial survey and the only national survey that specifically examines the experiences of LGBTQ youth at school. The survey asks youth about their experiences with harassment and victimization at school, hearing biased language from students and school staff (e.g., homophobic and racist remarks), and other factors that affect their overall feelings of comfort and safety at school. It provides an opportunity for LGBTQ youth to speak out about the unique challenges they face and to inform education policymakers and the public about what is really going on in U.S. schools.. “
