TEN81 June 2018 Theme: Bullying of LGBT Youth

• Don’t react to the bully

• Try to remain calm. Don’t show the bully how you feel

• Show confidence. Even if you don’t feel confident, act like you do

• Look the bully in the eye and tell them to stop, but don’t get into a confrontation. Walk away

• If possible, have a talk with the bully if the right opportunity arises

• Stay connected and hang out with a group – bullies will try to isolate you.

• Involve an adult, someone you trust, or professional person. Talk about it

• Act quickly. The longer the bully gets away with it, the more power they have over their victims

• Don’t blame yourself. The problem lies with the bully, not you.
