Aged 16-25? LGBT or Questioning?

Publish Date: 21/05/2012

Youth Chances wants to know what life is like for young lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and for those who are questioning their sexuality or gender identity (LGBTQ)

Youth Chances is the first ever research project to explore the impact of sexuality and gender on the life chances of 16-25 years olds across England.

The research is focusing on the experiences of lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans young people, as well as those questioning their sexuality or gender (LGBTQ young people). The evidence collected will help to inform and improve the services that are provided for young people by sharing them with organisations who deliver services and commissioners who allocate money to those services.

Youth Chances is led by the Metro Centre in partnership with the University of Greenwich and Ergo Consulting and funded by the Big Lottery.

By collecting experiences of 15,000 16-25 year olds across England the aim is to present comprehensive data on the good and the bad of growing up in 2012 when you are LGBTQ. Help fill out the survey and send it round to any and all the networks of young people you know.

    A good thing of being bisexual in this day and age is that when you come out to your friends they accept it with open arms and encourage you to talk about your feelings of the same sex as well as the opposite. Also being open with other people your age they respect you (well most) and they get the chance to see the real you. A negative would be that those who are not as open minded as others tend to be disgusted by you and tend to use the fact of you being not straight against you and call you names like 'dyke' or 'fag' for gays. However it's mostly good being bisexual etc. today as it is more widely accepted.
