The accompanying construction of gay youth identity is particularly complex, given that compulsory heterosexuality is coated and the fact that the school has become the guardian and reproductive heterosexist order. The problem, however, occurs when some (as) young people are resisting that order. In essence lgbt community is a community of differences, unified the harassment, intolerance and discrimination that they experience its members. The circle of violence is weakened to the extent that the subjects themselves, victims of violence, decided to «come out», otherwise they risk becoming hostage to it. In the school context elements that can help in this process are: the breakdown of the culture of silence, preventing bullying and promoting antinohosexual support networks and support: peers, school and family.

Palavras-chave : school; sexual identity; «coming out of the closet».
