This inforgraphic from GLSEN shows nationwide statistics for LGBTQ+ students in America. This data is from their 2021 National School Climate Survey report. Because this data is from the 2020-2021 academic year, when schools had to respond to the COVID pandemic, the full report  also discusses key differences between the experiences of LGBTQ+ students in online only, in-person only, and hybrid learning environments.
