Due to their sexual orientation, gender identity, or expression, many LGBTQ+ people experience stigma, prejudice, and discrimination that can have a substantial detrimental impact on their mental health. Different manifestations of this prejudice include verbal abuse, physical assault, isolation, social rejection, and legal injustices. Discrimination may cause people to feel alone, ashamed, and low in self-esteem, which can exacerbate mental health issues like melancholy and anxiety. The goal of the research is to learn more about the experiences of homosexual and lesbian youth in academic and college settings and further to understand the peer pressures such as homophobia in speech and behaviour, physical harassment, and staff attitudes towards this section of society. An examination of the text, restrictions on existing research, ramifications for future study, ramifications for practice, and also included was a summary of the study. Provide the necessary knowledge on how social identity develops and is currently a topic, with a focus on the LGBT community, to help people understand how important this is in today's society's perceptions of the most underserved group of people. In order to broaden the scope of the research, a thematically analyzed interview was also undertaken.Pages: 05-08 | Views: 90 | Downloads: 42Download Full Article: Click Here
