Growing up LGBT: School, Friends, and Mental Health

Young people from the amazing X2Y Youth Group in Wolverhampton discuss the challenges of growing up as an LGBT youngster:

  • How do schools deal with homophobic bullying?
  • Is the school curriculum, including PSHE and sex education 'heteronormative' and ignorant of the needs of LGBT students?
  • What is the effect on a young person's mental health?
  • How can great friends help to support LGBT young people?

The film was animated by Stone's Throw Media.
