New resource on Homophobic Bullying

LGBT Youth Scotland has developed a new resource on Homophobic Bullying for all pupils in Scottish Schools as part of the Challenging Homophobia Together Schools Project.

 The resource covers the following topics:

  •       What is homophobic bullying?
  •       The impact of  phrases such as ‘that’s soo gay’ or the use of the word ‘gay’ to make fun of someone/something
  •       A questions and answer section
  •       Advise on what to do if you are experiencing homophobic bullying
  •       Young people’s rights at school
  •       How to help challenge homophobia in schools
  •       Information on local LGBT youth groups and useful services


The resource folds-up into pocket size and is currently being distributed to secondary schools throughout Dundee, Dumfries and Galloway, the Scottish Borders, and Glasgow.

 You can download an electronic copy here.

The design is based on the Challenging Homophobia Together campaign ‘Some Phobias Make Sense Don’t’. Posters are also available for download in the resource section here.

We would like to thank all the young people, staff and professionals that contributed to the development of this resource including CHT Peer Educators and the LGBT National Youth Council (NYC).

Some of the content of this resource also comes from ‘Bullying… What can I do?’ A resource produced by respectme, Scotland’s Anti-Bullying Service: www.respectme.org.uk
