This study documented risk behaviors among homosexually and bisexually experienced adolescents.
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.
Students reporting same-sex contact were more likely to report fighting and victimization, frequent use of alcohol, other drug use, and recent suicidal behaviors.
Students with same-sex experience may be at elevated risk of injury, disease, and death resulting from violence, substance abuse, and suicidal behaviors.
