LGBT History Month

LGBT History month is celebrated in February every year.  Take a look at the LGBTHM website and the Prevalence of Homophobia Survey that is live and ongoing:

This Prevalence of Homophobia survey was born out of the experiences of one secondary classroom teacher who was the subject of repeated physical and verbal abuse over a number of years. The abuse, as if often the case came mainly from a the small group of young lads whose grasp on their ‘masculine’ stereotype of fragile but was ameliorated in part by the common-sense acceptance of the diversity exhibited by the majority of students and staff. The real problem was the point-blank refusal of the school management to challenge such ignorance and thereby endorse the acceptance of diversity shown by the majority of the school.
