“LGBT youth in higher poverty communities reported more victimization in school because of sexual orientation and gender expression than those in more affluent communities. Yet, they were less likely to hear homophobic remarks—both homophobic epithets and remarks using ‘gay’ in a derogatory manner.” —Just one of the conclusions found by GLSEN’s research of over 6,000 LGBT junior high students, as revealed in the August edition of the Journal of Youth and Adolescence

I grew up in a poor rural community. While I was still called faggot words like “city boy,” physical violence, exclusion, were more common.
umm because they use slang ,”fag” is too proper ……and dont forget how bleek it is for gays in third world countries who are poor and isolated(no state crossing possible only expensive ,emotionally taxing exodus across a vast ocean )
Maybe because blacks and other minorities are just as homophobic as whites…
