Victimization of LGBTQ+ youth in schools in the form of bullying is a national concern. Research has shown that LGBTQ+ youth are more likely to be bullied than their non-LGBTQ+ peers. Bullying can lead to social and emotional, academic, and mental health concerns for LGBTQ+ youth. This literature review attempted to discover effective interventions to alleviate these problems for LGBTQ+ youth. Databases were scoured for peer-reviewed articles to use in this literature review. There is an on-going challenge to help this at-risk and diverse population, but the findings of this literature review provide a starting place for adults in schools to begin the hard work of meaningful intervention
