Whilst we are campaigning in Scotland, we hope that we can spark enough debate and awareness that this issue can trickle down throughout the rest of the UK. We hope that others can see this campaign, and feel confident enough to kickstart their own. The time to get serious is now - if we allow another generation of LGBT youth to feel marginalised, isolated and excommunicated within their own schools - then we, as a society, have failed.
It took a long time for me to realise, with the help of counsellors at the Rainbow Project and Lifeline (two fantastic resources that I was able to use to save my own life) that I am loved, I am valued and I am as deserving of happiness as anyone else. But it has to start with accepting yourself first.
