Homophobic Bullying (Schools)
Chris Bryant (Rhondda, Labour)
I apologise for arriving late, but I have been attacking the Church of England on a very similar issue.
An organisation called Diversity Role Models, which plays an important role in London schools, would like to be able to play a role more widely around the country. It provides role models to go into schools who are expert at talking about such issues. In one class, 95% of the kids at the beginning of a session said that they would never have a gay or lesbian friend, but by the end, only 20% said that they would not have one. That is the kind of difference that we need to make, is it not?
