    Objectives

    This study documented risk behaviors among homosexually and bisexually experienced adolescents.

    Methods

    Data were obtained from a random sample of high school students in Massachusetts.

    Violence, substance use, and suicide behaviors were compared between students with same-sex experience and those reporting only heterosexual contact.

    Differences in prevalence and standard errors of the differences were calculated.

    Results

    Students reporting same-sex contact were more likely to report fighting and victimization, frequent use of alcohol, other drug use, and recent suicidal behaviors.

    Conclusions

    Students with same-sex experience may be at elevated risk of injury, disease, and death resulting from violence, substance abuse, and suicidal behaviors.
