Anti-homophobia alliances in schools cut teen binge drinking, UBC study finds
from Postmedia news via The Province
A study from the University of British Columbia (UBC) has found a surprising benefit of gay-straight alliances in high schools — lower rates of binge drinking among students. The study, published recently in the journal Preventive Medicine, found that both straight students and girls who identified as lesbian or bisexual were less likely to binge drink if their school had a gay-straight alliance for at least three years.
