Abstract:Sperling Enterprises conducted a survey for Money Magazine in January, 2004 which in part examined one hundred large, medium and small metropolitan areas in the United States to determine which metropolitan areas were the most and least stressful places to reside. The Harrisburg-Carlisle-Lebanon Area tied for first place with the Albany-Schenectady-Troy Area of New York as the least stressful areas in which to reside. How then do the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered and questioning youth fare in this area? Are they less targeted for anti-gay harassment in school than other larger urban areas or not? What can the lesbian gay, bisexual and transgendered adult community tell us was their experience while in school? Are LGBTQ youth safer in schools in this area of Central Pennsylvania than in areas such as Philadelphia and New York? Would the institution of a segregated school just for gay teens to attend like the Harvey Milk School in New York City have a chance here? How does the community as a whole view this institution? Or are organizations designed to operate within the already established schools to promote understanding between heterosexual and homosexual youth preferable? What do the gay youth and adults in this tri-city area have to say about this? Is there a relationship between the choice each gay person makes with reference to how best solve the problem of school safety person when in school? Were those whose trauma was severe and debilitating more likely to choose a segregated environment like the Harvey Milk School and did those whose experiences were less traumatizing select a choice such as a gay/straight alliance on existing high school campuses? These are the questions this study seeks to answer by using qualitative research methods. Two questionnaires, one created for LGBTQ youth and one for LGBT adults, soliciting information on their experiences with or witnessing anti-gay harassment in school are two of the major and primary sources of data. In addition, eleven in-depth interviews will be conducted in an attempt to go more deeply into the feelings, opinions and reactions of gay youth and adults on school safety. The 2003 National Climate Survey conducted by GLSEN is examined to add further data for LGBTQ youth nationwide. What this researcher sincerely hopes for is that each reader of this study from whatever quadrant of society they come will find value, assistance and resources to help LGBTQ youth break the cycle of isolation, loneliness, depression, homelessness, drug and alcohol abuse, prostitution and suicide once and for all.
