The article reports on the Education for All campaign of gay rights campaign group Stonewall in Great Britain. Part of the campaign concerning the awareness for homophobic bullying in schools involves the wearing of one T-shirt from the group by a character in the television soap "Hollyoaks." Communications officer Gary Nunn states that working with the soap made sense as its storylines depict the lives of young gay people. Celebrities and politicians including Prime Minister Gordon Brown have expressed support for the campaign.
