School is a big part of teens' lives. Some GLBT youth have really positive experiences, but sadly, others do not. In fact, the Gay Lesbian and Straight Education Network did a school climate survey which found that almost 9 out of 10 GLBT students experienced harassment at school in the past year.

Here gay teens share some personal reflections on school that cover everything from coming out, to being involved with a GSA and getting bullied.
