I would like to get us back up and moving. This time around I would like to make sure we are organized and actually have a specific goal for this year. So followers its time for some ideas. What should we be doing and how can we get organized? Let us know what you think!
For those of you who really enjoyed the Irish campaign or for those of you living in Ireland check out the group who made it. Stand Up seems to be a great campaign run by a group called “BeLonG To”. Remember get involved!
Hey everyone don’t forget today is One Day To End Gay Bullying…so wear some purple! We would love it if some of you could submit pictures of yourself wearing purple or showing that you are in the fight to end gay bullying.
More than 64 percent of LGBT students say they feel unsafe at school because of their sexual orientation.
Does that bother you…because it bothers us. On Monday April 25 we propose that everyone in support of ending gay bullying stands up for those who need us. To show your support you may chose to do one or all of the following:
1) Wear purple 2) Make a status or tweet that says “I will not stand for gay bullying…it ends today!” 3) Reach out to someone who you know is facing being bullied.
It is through small things like this that we can accomplish our goals to educate people on the issues LGBT people are facing.
Though it may seem that taking action in order to get something accomplished is common sense, it isn’t to everyone. Many people are passive to situations that require them to get involved. When it comes to gay bullying many people ignore it or don’t do enough to end it. We are asking you to get involved. Step into a situation when somebody needs you, stand up for people, and do whats right. Recently in London a gay couple was removed from a pub for kissing. That is complete nonsense and a perfect example of gay people being bullied. However action was taken when people decided to protest in their own special way. Show people that you are not afraid to be who you are or defend someone who is being themselves. This movement is all about informing people of the issues LGBT people are facing and encouraging them to do something about it.
We would love to know how everyone deals with situations like this in their everyday lives or how they are taking action to end gay bullying! Please share your stories and feel free to speak up.
