Stand Up Awareness Week is a time for second-level schools in Ireland to join us and take a stand against homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying. This week is an opportunity for schools to look at how they can make them safe and supportive places for LGBTI+ students. It is unacceptable that one in five young LGBTI+ people face bullying, and that 70% of young LGBTI+ students feel unsafe at school. At BeLonG To, we are working hard to educate and train the entire school community around supporting LGBTI+ young people.
A big thank you to Ms. Harris and to all our students who ‘Stood Up’ for this very important week! Well done everyone!!
