NOTE: These laws prohibit bullying in schools on the basis of protected characteristics. "Association with someone with a listed characteristic" means the law prohibits bullying a student based on his/her relationship with someone. These laws protect students with LGBT friends or relatives. While some states, districts and schools have non-enumerated anti-bullying laws, research by the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) finds that such laws have no impact on rates of anti-LGBT bullying. Therefore, states with such laws are not included on this map. Some states may interpret "gender" to include gender identity/expression. Such states are not reflected on this map. Massachusetts' anti-bullying law will come into effect on July 23, 2014.
