Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine perceived phobias within the LGBTQ+ community. While there is anecdotal evidence how certain subgroups of the LGBTQ+ community are treated worse than others, there is no empirical evidence that suggests this. I conducted a 40-question survey based on the Collective Self-Esteem survey that resulted in 135 responses, and found that while there were no significant differences on general or specific levels of self-esteem, bisexual individuals felt that they, on average, were liked less than other groups and had lower levels of self-esteem compared to other groups. I propose future research with greater numbers of participants and identities.
