Lesbian Teen Reveals She Was Forced To Use Boys' Locker Room, Rest Room In British LGBT Youth Clip (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

LGBT teens are revealing some of their most painful experiences -- from being subjected to schoolyard bullying to being forced to use opposite-sex locker rooms -- as part of a new British advocacy video.

"When I was in P.E., I couldn’t get changed in the girls' toilets or the locker room or anything, so I had to get changed with the lads," one girl says. “My P.E. teacher said, 'You're not attracted to lads, so you have to go and get changed there,'"

Posted by LGBT Youth North West, the video is intended as an opportunity to have an open discussion, according to Pink News.

"I really hated school, because every day was just constant insults and the teachers told you to just get over it," another boy explains in the clip.
