Joana Prado Puglia, Edna Linhares Garcia

This study is the result of production of meaning analysis of discourses produced in discussion groups. The subjects were 32 female students and 8 male students in groups and one female student in an individual private interview, in public schools.

It is concluded to be necessary to create public policies aimed at training professionals, leading to information and debate on the topic for school, so that people can identify their strengths and coping strategies and resistance to lesbo-bi-trans-homophobic violence.
