A group called Diversity Role Models spoke to some Kingsbury High School students as part of Anti-Bullying Week. Diversity Role models is an anti-homphobia charity that wants to stop bullying before it happens by educating all young people about differences in sexuality and gender identity.
The session included a discussion about homophobia: what it is, why it happens and how it affects people. The group heard from two role models who spoke about their personal experiences of being gay and students had the chance to ask questions about their lives and their school days.
