Liberal Democrats are campaigning to stamp out homophobia in schools. The 'Stop Homophobic Bullying' Petition supports work currently being done in Parliament by Liberal Democrat MPs and Members of the House of Lords to get Government support for the following measures :-

John Leech MP, who is supporting a Parliamentary Early Day Motion to tackle homophobic bullying, will say "Homophobic bullying affects many pupils, teachers and school staff whether they are lesbian, gay, bisexual or straight and can cause lasting harm. It is time that the Government had a clear strategy to stamp out homophobia in schools. I am proud today to be launching the 'Stop Homophobic Bullying' Petition in the North West at Manchester LGBT Pride - a petition which outlines clear measures that the Government can promote to end this scourge in our playgrounds and classrooms. I urge you to sign our Petition and support the campaign to stamp out homophobia in schools!"
