Learning and resources on gender in education
Be a buddy, not a bully!
Experiences of sexual and gender minority youth in Tamil Nadu schools
Ensuring all children and young people have access to safe, inclusive, health-promoting learning environments is a strategic priority for UNESCO. In response to this priority, UNESCO supported Sahodaran, a community-based organization working among LGBT populations, to undertake this research. This is the first exploratory study in India focusing specifically on the issue of school violence, bullying and discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity and expression (SOGIE). The report highlights the extent of the issue, the negative impacts of bullying and the measures school education departments could take to address it.
