AbstractThis research study investigates the perspectives of service providers in working with Chinese lesbian and gay youth in Hong Kong secondary schools, and maps the relations between same-sex sexualities, religion, education, and self-harm. Service providers included secondary school teachers, social workers based on- and off-school sites, and lesbian/transgender activists working in non-government organizations serving lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender communities. By studying the level of acceptance and tolerance of same-sex sexualities in schools, this study aims to provide further understanding into Hong Kong youth issues and to highlight the connections between deliberate self-harm behaviour and being a lesbian, gay, or bisexual youth. Using a qualitative approach, sixteen in-depth interviews were conducted with service providers and extensive participant observation was carried out as fieldwork for this ethnographic study. A discussion of research findings is comprised of four main themes: obstructive barriers to discussing sexualities in schools, personal disinclination and religion, being lesbian and gay as susceptible to self-harm, and similarities in perceptions of self-harmers and LGB youth. 本研究旨在探討服務於香港中學,服務對象涉及華人女同志及男同志青少年的助人工作者之觀點;並勾勒出同性情慾、宗教、教育以及自殘行為之間的關係。本研究中的助人工作者,包括中學教師、服務於校內或校外之社工人員、服務於同志相關的非政府組織之女同志/跨性別社會運動人士。藉由研究學校對同性戀的接納包容程度,本研究旨在對香港青少年議題提供進一步的理解,並突顯蓄意的自我傷害行為與身為女同志、男同志及雙性戀者之間的關聯。採用質性研究取向,本項民族誌研究針對助人工作者前後共進行16 次深入訪談,田野工作部份則是採取廣泛的參與觀察。研究發現部份涵蓋四大主題:在校談性/性慾特質(sexualities)之阻礙;個人的勉強意願與宗教之關聯;身為同性戀者容易有自殘傾向;對於自殘行為與女同志、男同志、雙性戀青少年之相似觀點。
