Bullying

Bullying can take lots of different forms, but all of them can be upsetting and difficult to deal with.

Homophobia and homophobic bullying can damage your self-esteem, make you scared to go to school and have an effect on how well you do in your exams. Nobody has to put up with bullying.

COMING OUT

Coming out is when someone tells someone else their sexual orientation or gender identity. Most of us are brought up to think that everyone is attracted to the opposite sex and that our gender identity will match our physical body (or the gender we were assigned at birth), but this is not the case for many people. If you are unsure about your sexual orientation or gender identity, we can help.

Are you safe online?

The Internet has many good opportunities to get involved, find out information, make friends, and share experiences. However, it is a public space, and everything that you post online can be seen by anyone who has access to the Internet.
