    Stop Prejudice

     

    Homophobia Stops with You - Name calling is more than just a joke. It can really hurt. 
    In the following sections you'll find information about what homophobia is, and how to make sure it stops with you. 


    The good news is that we can all play a part in stopping homophobia. There are many things you can do right now in your family, school, work-place, and local community. Homophobic slurs and discrimination hurt everyone, including gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people, but also their friends, families, colleagues and communities.
