One interesting finding from the study was that LGBTQ+ students were four times more likely to relocate for college than straight students. Rather than being for program-related purposes, these moves were made so the students could leave unwelcoming home environments and judgmental family members.
Our new study finds 22% of LGBTQ people choose a college away from home in search of a more welcoming environment. One-third left home to get away from their families. https://t.co/6Ce5b6wrhH pic.twitter.com/2Ho9BGA1RC
