Some People are Gay

This is part of a great new public educational campaign to combat homophobia in England. Maybe American groups should take a page out of our British brethren’s books and do the same.

The uncompromising statement and powerful design were developed in collaboration with 150 secondary school pupils and teachers for Stonewall. They were originally launched by Dr Who and Torchwood star John Barrowman as part of Stonewall’s Education for All campaign to tackle homophobic bullying in schools.

The posters, stickers and postcards, distributed to all 5,000 secondary schools across England, were so well-received by pupils and teachers that the message has gone beyond the school gates.

Ben Summerskill, Stonewall Chief Executive, says: ‘Homophobia is almost endemic in our schools and blights the lives of people throughout society. It makes sense that this zero-tolerance message should be extended to the wider public. Across urban and rural Britain, this plain-speaking slogan will remind people that discrimination against gay men and lesbians is no longer acceptable.’

    That’s great! Any way we could import a couple of billion to scatter around here?

    The problem with this kind of campaign (which Stonewall fail to realise) is that MOST people have “got over it” and don’t really feel at ease being told to do so by a bunch of suited and booted over-paid queens from Islington.
