This year marks the 10-year anniversary of BeLonG To’s ‘Stand Up Awareness Week’. For a decade now, youth across Ireland have been taking a stand against homophobic, transphobic, and biphobic bullying.
Unfortunately, anti-LGBTI+ bullying is not a thing of the past. It is happening across Ireland every day.
You can take a stand for LGBTI+ young people by downloading the Stand Up Awareness Pack.
This year’s pack includes:
- A Resource Booklet packed with Activity Ideas.
- A Primer on LGBTI+ Terminology.
- Tips to Support Transgender Youth.
The pack also includes bright, colourful posters for your Youth Space.
Hang them up and let young people know that your Youth Service is LGBTI+ friendly.
You can also join the Conversation Online
As part of this year’s Stand Up event, BeLonG To are asking you to share your activities on social media, using the hashtag #Standup19.
Don’t forget to send photos of any activities you arrange for Stand Up Awareness Week to firstname.lastname@example.org
