Quotes about challenging homophobia in schools.


Some quotes I like:

“Gay People are everywhere… except in the National Curriculum, and certainly not visible in our schools” (Moffat, 2007 pg2).

‘Everyone is an insider, there are no outsiders – whatever their beliefs, whatever their colour, gender or sexuality.’ Archbishop Desmond Tutu, February 2004

(Taken from Page 2 of Stand up for Us Guidance jointly produced by Department of Health and Department for Education and Skills written by Mark Jennet, 2004)

 

“Homophobic language is often used in ignorance and therefore education is crucial”

(Safe To Learn, 2007, p60)

 

“Our Sexuality is the most spontaneously natural thing about us. It is the basis for some of our most passionate feelings and commitments. Through it we experience ourselves as real people; it gives us our identities, our sense of self, as men and women, as heterosexual and homosexual, normal or abnormal, natural or unnatural.”

(Weeks, 2003 p3)

 

Homosexuality exists in 1500 species, homophobia in just one.

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”                                                                                      (Nelson Mandela, 2003)
