Hold on.

Bullying needs to stop.

It isn’t just ‘a part of growing up’, it’s serious and causes hundreds of teenage deaths every year. 7% of bullied teenagers attempted suicide of which 3% succeeded. It sounds like it’s a small figure but it should be 0%. Schools aren’t doing enough to stop it.

It seems odd that we’d take time out to make a video like this. But we needed to tell people that it is wrong and it needs to stop.

As you were told in the video 50% of gay, lesbian and bi-sexual people were subject to homophobic bullying last year.

Bullying might seem like it’s just teasing and ‘character building’ but it’s not.

Stop it.
