Shh! Silence Helps Homophobia Education Campaign launch

LGBT Youth Scotland is delighted to be launching its new Education Campaign today, Shh! Silence helps homophobia. This campaign will run through all of LGBT Youth Scotland's Education activities for 2014-15. 

Central to this campaign is the Shh! Silence helps homophobia film, which has been funded by the Fife Cultural Partnerships Fund. The original ideas for the film were created by the Fife LGBT Youth group, 'flavours of fife', who then expanded the concept into a script and thereafter received funding to enable the full production of the script into a short film, which is now being rolled out nationally as part of LGBT Youth Scotland's Education Campaign. 

The film takes you through a young persons experience of homophobia at school, asking us 'what could be done differently'?

Watch the full film here:


The film gives us the clear message that doing nothing fuels homophobia - Shh! Silence helps homophobia asks us to stand up, speak out. The film is ultimately a call to action and shows us that we can all make a difference in an LGBT young persons life, we can challenge homophobia when we see it and refuse to stay silent.  

LGBT Youth Scotland needs your support to deliver our work in schools. For more information on how to donate, specifically to our schools work fund, please go to www.lgbtyouth.org.uk/Shh.
