Focus on the Family affiliate CitizenLink said in a radio segment this morning that teens “who identify as homosexual and transgender” are unhappy and engage in risky behavior not because they face discrimination, but rather because of how they self-identify. This claim is in response to a recently released report from HRC, called Growing Up LGBT in America.
Growing Up LGBT in America
HRC released Growing Up LGBT in America yesterday, the first in a series of reports based on the largest known survey of LGBT youth to date. The report finds that LGBT youth experience more rejection and intolerance and less support in comparison to their non-LGBT peers.
