Bullying: The Connection Between School Support and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning and Queer (LGBTQ2) Youth Adjustment

School bullying is an epidemic in American schools. Students experience many different forms of bullying each day. All types of students in school experience bullying, but in recent years there has been an increase in bullying toward Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning and Queer (LGBTQ2) youth. When students are bullied in school, they experience greater challenges in school which directly impact self-esteem. Because of this, this researcher is going to review the connection between school support around bullying and the adjustment of LGBTQ2 youth. According to Olweus (1994) as cited by Dake, Price, and Telljohann, S. K. (2003) bullying is defined as repeated victimization, injury, or discomfort inflicted on one person to another.
