Studies of LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender) gifted students face the difficulty of identifying these at-risk students who are hidden, threatened, and oppressed in many schools. The fear of disclosure makes this group difficult to identify, but meeting their unique affective and curriculum needs is crucial. This qualitative study used case studies and interviews to obtain information about the experiences and attitudes to LGBT gifted students by both gifted and non-gifted students in two high schools: one urban, ethnically diverse, and low-income; and one suburban, macro-cultural, and affluent. Includes recommendations for differentiated counseling services for LGBT students.
