Abstract: This is the third of the 'Writing Themselves In' national reports which have been conducted six years apart since 1998. In 2010, a total of 3134 same sex attracted and gender questioning (SSAGQ) young people participated in 'Writing Themselves In 3 (WTi3)', almost double the number in 2004 and more than four times that of 1998. The participants, who were aged between 14 and 21 years, came from all states and territories of Australia, from remote (2%), rural (18%) and urban (67%) areas and from a range of culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds. There were more young women (57%) than young men 41%) and a smaller group (3%) who were gender questioning (GQ).The report concludes with a series of recommendations arising out of the research and directed at government, education authorities, schools and health services.
