Abstract Public health professionals and educators have developed effective school-based interventions to reduce prejudice and stigma against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender LGBT students. While the causes of this are somewhat unclear, it is likely that increased class conflict alongside the Gregorian reform movement in the Catholic Church were two important factors. Some also struggle to reconcile their teen's sexual orientation with their religious or personal beliefs. Public health professionals have an important ethical bar to pass in designing interventions. They prefer broad interventions that aim to change the school environment so that it promotes the dignity of LGBTQ students and therefore not only protects them from harm but allows them to thrive.
