Council best in country for tackling homophobia

First published in News

BRIGHTON and Hove City Council has been named the top local authority in the country for tackling homophobic and biphobic bullying in schools.

The pressure group Stonewall has put the council in first place in their 2014 Education Equality Index.

Stonewall has described the council as ‘leading the way’ in celebrating difference and supporting lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students.

Councillor Sue Shanks, chairwoman of the council’s children and young people committee, said: “We want all our young people to be proud of who they are and to be able to make the best of their talents without fear or prejudice.

“In our schools young people are active participants in our anti-bullying work.

She added: “This is a proud moment for our city.

Stonewall praised the work the council does jointly with the Allsorts Youth Project charity.

Young people from Allsorts have delivered training to council and school staff and provided anti-homophobic bullying sessions in secondary and primary schools.

Stonewall praised Blatchington Mill School for a Student Equality Conference it held earlier this year that was attended by 60 students from five secondary schools.

St Nicolas’ Primary School was praised for the innovative work it has done on challenging the use of homophobic language in the playground.

Allsorts director Jess Wood, MBE, said: “The council and our schools have done amazing work this year and deserve this great recognition.

“We cannot praise the schools highly enough.

“They have taken on the issues and worked tirelessly to change things for the better.

“We all work closely together and this mutual support and enthusiasm has made our schools and our city a safer place for LGBT children and young people.”

While the council celebrates this success it has yet to manage the bigotry and intolerance around religion.
One of its councillors Ben Duncan Tweeted that a Christian school in the town was a cult and has apparently Tweeted derogatory comments about other religions.
I am surprised that the council has not acted or informed the police or are some people more equal than others?

"Stonewall has described the council as ‘leading the way’ in celebrating difference......."

'Difference'.

They appear to want it both ways. On the one hand, they want everyone to be equal and be seen as being 'normal', yet on the other they are encouraging the highlighting of differences based on orientation. By celebrating 'differences', they are encouraging dislike and even hatred. The very fact that B&H council is having to deal with this type of bullying shows that pupils aren't happy about the differences that the council is celebrating.

Wouldn't it be better if the council just addressed the issue of bullying in schools (which has gone on for ever and will probably always do) without drawing attention to the reason behind the bullying? For instance, how does the council cope with those who are bullied for their weight/height/skinto
ne/hair colour etc? Are figures on those actually compiled?

Well said clunky. Comments like this from R the F and his ilk just go to show that that the efforts of the schools are vital to counter this nasty small minded bigotry. Or maybe he's happy for gay kids to commit suicide, or at best live in fear of bullying and unable to be themselves. The school environment should be supportive and safe, enabling all the kids to reach their true potential.

Approximately how many transgender students did Stonewall identify in local schools? Because I suspect the figure would be so low as to defy statistical analysis. Likewise, I would be very interested in discovering the criteria they employed to make the overall assessment discussed.

I don't think it's so much about celebrating 'differences', but rather celebrating 'tolerance' - not seeing 'differences' to begin with. And yes bullying sucks, but that's mostly down to children who have ignorant idiots as parents. Unfortunately there's not much you can do about that, other than not allowing them to breed.

The Council was praised for celebrating differences.

If you have issues with that, take them up with Stonewall.

Have you considered the possibility that the bullying in question might be simply gay taunts at children who happen to be straight?

We once had the ridiculous case of the man arrested for calling a police horse 'gay'. It was deemed 'homophobic' by the arresting officer and subsequently dismissed.

In the pursuit of being seen to be supportive of the 'rights' of others, the authorities are too quick to make accusations of racism and homophobia over trivial comments, and I suspect that B&H council will merely be over-zealous in such matters.

Saying "oh, that is sooooo gay" isn't an offence.

You're ignoring the fact just because a lot of gays relocate to Brighton, the city won't proportionally produce any more gays than any other city.

Don't make the mistake of thinking that being homosexual is somehow hereditary. Even if that were the case, gay couples will be less likely to produce offspring anyway.

This means that Brighton will have just as many gay schoolkids as any city of comparable size.

You're ignoring the fact just because a lot of gays relocate to Brighton, the city won't proportionally produce any more gays than any other city.

Don't make the mistake of thinking that being homosexual is somehow hereditary. Even if that were the case, gay couples will be less likely to produce offspring anyway.

This means that Brighton will have just as many gay schoolkids as any city of comparable size.
Less likely to produce offspring??? Try impossible
well if there rich enough they can buy some
