The report includes new data from the state’s youth risk behavior survey results. The commission released its report during a ceremony at the Massachusetts State House. During the ceremony new commission memof Massachusetts youth identifi ed as LGBTQ. The data also show some troubling trends among LGBTQ youth, including: 22.3 percent of LGBTQ youth report having been bullied in the past year, compared to 12.8 percent of non-LGBTQ youth. Approximately 35 percent of LGBTQ youth report having hurt themselves on purpose in past year, including having cut or burned themselves. This is compared to 11.2 percent of non-LGBTQ youth. Approximately 31 percent of bers were also sworn in. “This report outlines important steps that should be taken to better support LGBTQ youth across Massachusetts, said Corey Prachniak-Rincón, Director of the Massachusetts Commission on LGBTQ Youth. “The results of the Youth Risk Behavior Survey demonstrate the critical need that exists to ensure LGBTQ youth are healthy, safe, and thriving as they grow into adulthood.” The Youth Risk Behavior Survey shows that 15.2 percent LGBTQ youth seriously considered suicide in the past year, compared to 9.9 percent of non-LGBTQ youth. Alarmingly, 16.3 percent of LGBTQ youth made a suicide attempt, compared to 4.1 percent of non-LGBTQ youth. The report focuses on four core areas for state lawmakers and regulators to consider, including LGBTQ inclusion, ending homelessness, advancing justice, and sexual and mental health. Among the recommendations in the report, the Commission is advocating for: All state employees and contractors to receive basic training on LGBTQ inclusion, more guidance and support for schools to work on LGBTQ inclusion, an increase in funding for the prevention and treatment of youth homelessness, improving ID access for youth experiencing homelessness and the creation of a bill of rights for people experiencing homelessness. All school districts in the Commonwealth to off er comprehensive, evidence-based, and LGBTQ-inclusive sexual health education An increase in HIV funding; an expansion in the availability of PrEP, and signifi cant reform to the mental healthcare system The Commission also supports the passage of legislation waiting Governor Charlie Baker’s signature that would ban the practice of “conversion therapy” on LGBTQ youth in Massachusetts.
