Covering the issues of;

  • Gaining courage and understanding from “the coming out” stories of other people,

  • Using the word ‘gay’ as an insult or to mean that something is not very good,
  • Bigoted ideas towards people of a different sexual orientation,
  • Challenging homophobic bullying,
  • The number of people who identify as gay in the UK,
  • Gay marriage,
  • The ‘gay gene’,
