Abstract:

This study aimed to document the experiences of homosexual students and their perception of the actions taken by the school using a validated researcher-made questionnaire. Twenty-eight (28) homosexual students age ranging from 15-17 years of Jaro National High School and La Paz National High School participated in the study through purposive sampling. The data gathered were analyzed using frequency count and percentages. Findings showed that homosexual students experienced various forms of harassment such as verbal, physical, non-verbal, sexual and discrimination. The experiences of harassment have affected the students’ motivation to attend school; some reported to have skipped a class, skipped school, walked out of the classroom, and contemplated to stop schooling because of safety concerns. Many cases of harassment occurred without the presence of school authorities, hence they were not reported. Seven protective interventions were employed by the school, counseling was perceived as very effective while scolding, detention or community service, suspension of students and conference with parents were perceived to be somewhat effective.
