ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the plan of BeLonG, a Dublin-based GLBT youth project, to launch a campaign to check homophobic bullying in schools in January 2006. A report revealed that 94% of teachers were aware of homophobic bullying in their school, while 90% said that there was no mention of it in their schools anti-bullying policy. The objective of the campaign is to raise awareness amongst young people and the general population about bullying against GLBT young people and to affect change in the British Department of Education policy towards the protection of GLBT youth.
