the lesbian, gay and bisexual charity

It gets better... today.
We can make it happen.

Two thirds of lesbian, gay and bisexual young people have experienced homophobic bullying. However, where schools have said homophobic bullying is wrong gay pupils are sixty per cent less likely to have been bullied.

It gets better...today

Stonewall has launched a new campaign reassuring gay school pupils that they don't have to wait for things to get better in their lives - they can be great now. In Britain we have partnership rights, the right to serve in the military and the right to have children. Our government is committed to tackling homophobic bullying and many schools, supported by Stonewall's Education for All campaign, are taking bold steps to do just that.

The films are in response to a new US campaign featuring people from school teachers to Barack and Michelle Obama telling lesbian, gay and bisexual young people that things will eventually get better.

Rhona

I really admire Rhona Cameron, and I would listen to her message as I know she is a Lesbian Role Model she has taken a lot of hitrs for being gay. Any gay teenager should read her book 1979 a big year in a small town it is so much better than it was in 1979.
