Homophobia, biphobia and transphobia in schools is serious. We are working to provide school kids, teachers and families with appropriate resources to tackle any bullying they may experience at school.
GLRL was a founding partner of the Safe Schools Coalition NSW. Unfortunately the program was subject to sustained attack from conservative and Christian opponents, leading to its ultimate scrapping by the State Government.
It is staggering to think that an issue as fundamental as stopping bullying for LGBTI kids could become such a political football.
We are realisitc about finding a solution that lasts, and doesn’t become a political football. We believe the NSW Government needs to provide LGBTI kids, their families and schoolteachers, with sufficient and appropriate materials and resources to ensure bullying of LGBTI kids can be reduced in schools.
We continue to work with a variety of stakeholders to ensure this becomes a reality.
