I have a friend who is bullied at school because she is gay. What should she do?

Gay teens and adults are often the target of bullying, harassment and discrimination. It is important to report this bullying to the school. New York schools are required to have a designated bullying contact in each school trained to handle these issues. It is also important to keep records of the incidents and any injuries. This can include pictures, doctor receipts and prescriptions.
