Title:Educate with Pride event helps to tackle homophobic bullying

On 17 June, over a dozen Doncaster schools came together in a joint effort to put an end to homophobic bullying and increase support for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) young people. The Educate with Pride event, hosted by Doncaster Pride at The Dome, is the first of its kind in Doncaster.

Mayor Ros Jones gave a speech at the event, also attended by renowned speakers from across the country including Elly Barnes, founder and director of ‘Educate and Celebrate’ and LGBT advisor for Birmingham City Council.

Doncaster Council has supported this lottery-funded project, which aims to end homophobic bullying through educating residents, particularly young people, and ultimately lead to increased support for the young LGBT community in Doncaster.

Mayor Ros Jones said: ‘I am delighted to see local schools coming together with Doncaster Pride to take the initiative and organise a ground-breaking conference like this. I am 100% behind the efforts to end homophobic bullying and make Doncaster a truly friendly, safe and accepting place for all our children and young people.’

The event included workshop activities for the students in attendance, including an activity relating to Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE), an issue which was also discussed at the event by Doncaster Council’s CSE team.

Added Andrew Roe of Doncaster Pride: ‘It has been very encouraging to see such great participation from young people in our Educate with Pride event, and today has been a fantastic opportunity for local young people to speak about crucial and sensitive issues with experts in the field. We hope that more schools will be eager to engage with the project having witnessed the success of today’s event.’
