Bullying targeting secondary school students who are or are perceived to be transgender or same-sex attracted: Types, prevalence, impact, motivation and preventive measures in 5 provinces of Thailand

The report documents widespread bullying on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity in Thailand, with over 50% of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) students reporting this form of bullying in the past month. The study invested teasing and bullying among general secondary school students in 5 provinces in 4 regions of Thailand, focusing on situations where one party teases or bullies another because they perceive that other party to be same-sex attracted or transgender, regardless of whether the victim actually is LGBT or not.

It also documents the toxic effect bullying has on its victims, and steps schools, policy-makers and all of us need to do to address it. The study was undertaken by Plan International Thailand, UNESCO and Mahidol University, with support from the Swedish International Development Agency and UNAIDS funding to UNESCO.
