    The Centers for Disease Control compiled the Youth Risk Behavior Survey of high school students in 2016. According to their data, 8% of all high school students, approximately 1.3 million students, report being lesbian, gay, or bisexual. The data also shows that gay, lesbian, and bisexual high school students suffer more trauma in high school than their straight peers. The report can be found here and a summary, here
