Monday, September 14, 2015
GOLDEN GATE XPRESS -- Jim Gilligan, an associate professor in the English Language and Literature Department at SF State, has conducted extensive research on issues such as queer bullying and gender non-confirmative students. “Research has shown that nearly 90 percent of LGBTQ and gender non-conforming school-age students experience some sort of verbal or physical harassment,” Gilligan said. “And the rate is even higher and more alarming among members of the trans community.”
