Stand Up Awareness Week is a time for second-level schools, youth services, and Youthreach in Ireland to join us and take a stand against homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying.
It is heart-breaking that one in five young LGBTI+ people face bullying and that 73% of young LGBTI+ students feel unsafe at school.
Tullow Area SCP and Tullow Community School create spaces where LGBTI+ young people feel safe, equal, and valued.
Here are some activities we are doing this week to raise LGBTI+ awareness within the school environment.
