Growing recognition of homophobic bullying amongst researchers, policymakers, youth workers, teachers and other stakeholders has resulted in an increasing number of research studies and anti-bullying measures in this area. This has led to great advances in interventions addressing the issue. However homophobic abuse remains a reality for too many young people.

By undertaking a comprehensive review of recent academic, third sector and government literature, this report unpicks a number of ‘taken for granted’ assumptions around homophobic bullying and seeks to develop a wider understanding of the nature and extent of homophobic bullying, the groups and individuals affected, the impact on those involved and measures available to tackle the problem.
