A report from Stonewall shows two in five LGBT students hide who they are at university for fear of discrimination. It also found that 7% of trans students have been physically attacked by another student or member of university staff. The YouGov poll saw 522 LGBT university students questioned. Meanwhile a third of LGBT students (33%) have been the target of negative comments or conducts from other students. Plus over one in five bi students (22%) aren’t open with anyone at university about their sexual orientation. This is compared to 5% of gay and lesbian students.
