LGBTQ + Students who attend Christian universities and universities with anti-LGBTQ + policies are likely to be informed that their sexuality or gender identity prevented them from being accepted by others on campus compared to their Companions, according to a new survey of 3,000 students performed by the pulse of the University of the Topography Company on behalf of the Religious Exemption Liability Project (Tits), which promotes equality for LGBTQ + students in Christian Colleges. (The pulse of the University conducts surveys inside the Student Voice Project Superior, but within ED Superior did not play any role in this survey).

Many Christian colleges have policies that restrict students to express their LGBTQ + identities.

"Not only LGBTQ + students are more likely to feel that they do not belong to their campus community, they are also more likely to experience the disciplinary action of their own institutions. Some face mandatory advice, therapy Repairman and the loss of campus privileges When their identities are given to the attention of the campus administration, "said Paul Carlos Southwick, the director of COST, in a statement. "What is more: this discrimination and abuse is funded by taxpayers. These findings should serve as an alarm-up call for all interested parties of higher education to address the ongoing abuse that are carried out in publicly financed institutions" .

The survey found that 11 percent of students who attend Christian universities identified as non- heterosexual: when researchers used a broader definition that spanned any attraction between a heterosexual female and a heterosexual man , the percentage increased to approximately 22 percent, and 2 percent identified as a minority of gender (non-binary, genderqueer, agender, transgender or not cisgender). This is compared with approximately 15 percent of the members of generation Z (individuals born between 1997 and 2002) that are identified at the national level of LGBT, according to a recent Gallup survey.

Most LGBTQ + students are at a large degree on their campus: 19 percent indicated that no one would have told anyone on campus on their sexual or gender identity, while another 18 by HIGH said it was known for one or two people on campus and another 19 percent said it was known for three to five.

Non-heterosexual students were three times more likely to experience depression or anxiety compared to their heterosexual pairs. Transgender students and others who identify as gender minorities had almost five times more likely to experience intimidation and harassment, and seven times more likely to report that they are sexually assaulted to their campuses compared to students of CISGENDER

"Almost half of the genus Minority students and one third of the students of sexual minorities say they do not feel they belong to their campus," says the survey report, which can be downloaded from the site RAEP website when enrolling in the group's mailing list.

The survey reached students in 184 schools, the vast majority of whom are members of the council of Christian colleges and universities (the show also included some members of the CCU, including Bob Jones and universities of freedom , which are evangelical Christian and three campuses from Brigham Young University, an institution affiliated with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints). The survey went to students who attended schools that, according to the report, according to the report, "explicitly discriminate against LGBTQ + students".

Inside ED Superior shared the executive summary of the report with CCCU. "While they did not give us the opportunity to review the full results of the survey before commenting, we take these types of findings seriously, and we are interested in the review and learning of these reported results," said the organization in a release. "The CCU has supported a line of research in the last decade on the experiences of LGBT students in Christian schools that has been and continues to be published in peer-reviewed journals and
