More than one third of lesbian, gay and bisexual pupils experienced a hate crime or incident in the past year, according to a new survey. A poll of nearly 700 LGBT pupils also found 94 per cent said they had been bullied while 46 per cent rated their experience at school as “bad”. Of those that had been bullied nearly three quarters said it was because they were lesbian, gay or bisexual. The survey, by LGBT Youth Scotland, also heard first hand from the experiences of LGBT pupils.
