During the period January – October 2015, Bilitis Resource Center conducted a qualitative research study which answers the question, “To what extent do secondary schools in Sofia, Bulgaria provide an inclusive environment for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex students and teachers?” The research was supported by ILGA-Europe, the European Association of Organizations of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex people, which has more than 400 members. The research included analysis of the internal school policies for prevention of discrimination, bullying, and violence; interviews of students and teachers who self-identify as homosexual, bisexual, or transgender; and a questionnaire for school principals.
