Schools across Wales are producing a series of short films dealing with the problem of LGBT bullying. The films are being produced as part of a project run by the Iris Prize Festival. Among those taking part in project are pupils from Aberdare Community School, who chose to focus on bisexuality in their film.
As we informed our readers last month, the Education Secretary Nicky Morgan completely supports the anti-bullying initiative in UK schools and she even gave on million pounds in support of the anti-bullying project.
The Chief Executive of Stonewall, Ruth Hunt, welcomed the news. “We believe teaching young people about the importance of inclusivity and acceptance is the most powerful way we can fight homophobia, biphobia and transphobia,” she said. “This Department for Education funding is crucial to this aim because it enables us to make connections with schools and colleges in communities we haven’t worked with yet, and to help them create inclusive environments where all their pupils, no matter who they are, are accepted and encouraged to reach their potential.”
