On Thursday 20th and Friday 21st October, a committed group of teachers and health professionals undertook and completed the two-day Pride & Prejudice Facilitator Training. Hosted by Hobsons Bay Youth Services, educators and workers from across three local government areas came together to stop talking about challenging homophobia and to get moving.
Not only did participants receive frameworks, strategies and action plans for challenging homophobia, making schools safer and supporting young people better, they also got all the resources they could possibly need: Pride & Prejudice, Beyond ‘That’s So Gay’ and bound Summary Series from the tour.
One participant described feeling “energised” at the end, whilst another said in Beyond ‘That’s So Gay’ she had found “the Bible” on challenging homophobia in Australia schools.
