Last night, when I attended the LGBT sectoral consultation on the OFMDFM’s draft Programme for Cohesion, Sharing and Integration, we learnt some horrendous statistics from The Rainbow Project:
- 98% of LGBT young people suffered homophobic bullying at school.
- 30% of this school bullying was by adults
This is unacceptable, and must be condemned by all.
As a start, let’s all wear something purple today.
