Fulcrum UA published the first National School Climate Survey research in Ukrain

On January 26, 2018 in America House Kyiv was presented National School Climate Survey research, conducted by NGO Fulcrum UA in 2017.

According to the research, currently, there is little information on the school life of Ukrainian lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) teenagers; there is actually no nationwide academic study dedicated to LGBT youth in Ukraine.

Thus, 48.7% of the surveyed felt unsafe at school because of their sexual orientation, 36.5% – because of their body size, and 31.5% – because of their gender expression.

36.9% of LGBT students had missed at least one day of school during the past month due to feeling unsafe at school, 8.7% – six or more days; over a third of students avoided gendered spaces in school because of feeling unsafe or uncomfortable (toilets – 37.1%; locker rooms – 24.5%).
