A new study found that gay, lesbian, and bisexual teens are bullied less as they get older. The 7-year study also found that older gay men are bullied worse than older gay women.

Researchers analyzed thousands of teens in England. The study found 57 percent of lesbian or bisexual girls were bullied at ages 13 and 14. That number dropped to 6 percent by ages 18-20.

Also, 52 percent of gay or bisexual boys were bullied at 13-14 years old, and that number dropped to 9 percent by ages 18-20.
