LDYS' pin badges to raise the profile of the campaign

Ed Davey MP gave the Stop Homophobic Bullying campaign a welcome boost at a meeting at Leeds University today. Members of the university Liberal Democrat Society joined Ed Davey on the union steps to officially launch their part of the campaign, unveiling posters revealing the Lib Dem Youth & Students campaign slogan, "Homophobia is Gay."

LUU Lib Dem vice-president Jamie Saddler said: "This is a great campaign and we are delighted that Ed has come to Leeds not only to help us launch it, but also to engage in a frank and wide-ranging debate with students."

"Over the next few weeks and months, our campaign will be seeking to challenge the status-quo and highlight this issue with a program of events including a fund-raising social for charity, inviting more speakers, and of course persuading as many people as possible to sign our petition."

It met with great support at this years Fresher's Fair. Saddler reported: "Over 2,000 badges distributed, and countless more people signing the "Stop Homophobic Bullying" petition"
