Stand Up Awareness Week


Stand Up Awareness Week ran from November 13th-17th in 2017. We thank all second-level schools and youth services who participated making it our biggest Stand Up event to date!

As part of Stand Up Week, we invited all second-level schools in Ireland to join us and take a stand against homophobic and transphobic bullying. Stand Up week is an opportunity for schools to look at how they can make them safe and supportive places for LGBTI+ students. It is unacceptable that one in five young LGBTI+ people face bullying, and that 70% of young LGBTI+ students feel unsafe at school. At BeLonG To, we are working hard to educate and train the entire school community around supporting LGBTI+ young people.
