Gray Dunn started this petition to Nottinghamshire council

In schools and colleges around the UK, there is a clear lack of LGBT teachings. this puts the community in harm of more hate-crime and puts us in a more vulnerable position when it comes to sensitive areas such as sexual exploitation, and mental health issues. The government has marginally increased LGBT teachings over the years, however this is not been done nearly enough and the community still faces discrimination on a day to day basis.

A simple solution to this would be increasing LGBT teachings in not only places of education, but also in job sectors such as the police force. By increasing the education on this, we can directly allow people to form their own opinions when it comes to minorities, instead of being influenced by the media, family and friends.

As a member of the LGBT community myself, i have dealt with a lot of homophobia. Through this, i have lost a lot of confidence in my identity. however, I know a lot of people personally who are in much worse situations than I am, which is why I am creating this petition in an effort to help and protect them.

please, consider helping the community by signing this petition. Straight allies are needed in this community much more than people realize, and without your support, the community will be faced with more hate-crime every day. Please sign this petition and help stop the verbal and physical abuse faced by my community.
