Why does it matter?
Diversity Role Models actively seeks to prevent homophobic and transphobic bullying in UK schools. LGBT youth are six times more likely to commit suicide. Two thirds of them suffer homophobic bullying at school. Many don't have an adult to talk to at home or school.
This can have a serious impact on their learning and achievement.
91% of 16,480 students say they don't think it's okay to use the phrase "that's so gay" following a DRM workshop.
Our work is having a direct and positive impact on tackling homophobic bullying in schools.
There are many ways you can help us build on this.
