Interview with Daniel Browne from Push Project Warwickshire Campaigning to Make Schools a Safer Place for LGBTQ Youth
Written by Clay on November 25, 2013
Liane from Radio Warwickshire speaks to Daniel who with his team are calling on local schools to open a dialogue and discuss the bullying of LGBTQ students that is still prevalent amongst today’s youth. Homophobic and transphobic bullying can have a damaging effect on young people that lasts well into adulthood. It can cause mental health issues that some people never recover from.
We aim to work with schools to challenge homophobia & transphobia and celebrate diversity. We are able to deliver workshops to young people and provide training to teachers on how to tackle this huge social problem.
This is a vital piece of work and one that you can be involved with. If you would like to help make the lives of young LGBTQ people better please contact Dan at Push Projects.
