Affirmative lesbian, gay, and bisexual counseling with all clients. Abstract: Previous research has shown that mass perceptions about the sizes of minority populations are influenced by sociodemographic, threat, and context variables. In a random sample of high school health teachers, one in five surveyed said that students in their classes often used abusive language when describing homosexuals. 23 A national study of secondary school counselors' perceptions of adolescent homosexuals found that 25 percent perceived that teachers exhibited significant prejudice toward homosexual students and that 41 percent believed that schools were not doing enough to help gay and lesbian students adjust to their school environments. 24 In a random sample of high school health teachers, one third perceived the schools were not doing enough to help homosexual adolescents. 25 In a study of gay and lesbian adolescents 14 to 21 years of age, 23 percent of females and 25 percent of males reported that they were able to talk with their school counselors about their sexual orientation. 26 A 1988 national survey of heterosexual male youths 15 to 19 years of age found that only 12 percent felt that they could have a gay person as a friend. 27 In a 14-city survey, nearly three-fourths of lesbian and gay youth first disclosed their sexual identity to friends.
