ShoutOut School Workshops – Ireland

Homophobic and transphobic bullying is a real and life-threatening problem in Irish schools.

Shout Out’s one hour interactive sessions build understanding for people who are struggling with their sexuality, foster support amongst friends and classmates, and encourage a supportive and welcoming school environment for LGBTQ students.

In 2012, ShoutOut conducted a survey of 624 secondary school students. The results show that bullying of LBGTQ teens in school is almost universal
