LGBT YOUTH RIGHTS – AUSTRALIA

 

Imagine you’re 16 and you’re being bullied by your classmates, just for being gay. You try to reach out to someone at school for help – but the government has decided that people like you don’t deserve support. Sound outrageous? Well, it’s happening in Australia right now.

The Safe Schools Coalition was created to stop bullying of lesbian, gay, bi and trans (LGBT) youth in Australia. But after months of lobbying from homophobic legislators, PM Malcolm Turnbull caved to pressure, announcing the program would be reviewed. If anti-gay politicians get their way, it could be cut altogether.

But there’s still a chance to save it. The review’s just been announced, and Australians are outraged. If we join them and create a huge, global outcry in the next few days, we could pressure the government to keep the program and make sure LGBT kids are safe.
