Get involved with tackling Homophobic language at home
Homophobic language isn’t just ‘harmless banter’. It is having a negative impact on gay young people across Britain, with 84 per cent saying that they feel distressed when they hear the word 'gay' used as an insult. With your help we can tackle the casual use of the word ‘gay’ to mean rubbish.
What you can do
- Order a Stonewall campaign pack to give to your local school, workplace or community centre here! Each pack contains Stonewall posters, guides and stickers and costs just £5.
- Make a donation - just £5 allows us to send these resources to a secondary school, making sure hundreds of pupils know why it's wrong to say 'that's so gay'. Click here to make a donation or text GAY to 70500 to donate £5.
- Buy a t-shirt. Wear your brand new ‘Gay. Let’s Get The Meaning Straight’ t-shirt with pride! Help us reclaim the word ‘gay’ and show your support to young people.
- Get friends together and raise awareness and funds for Stonewall during Anti-Bullying Week. Be as creative as you like or hold a bake sale! Sell some cakes and donate the money to Stonewall.
