Ever wanted to be a superhero without having to wear a cape?

From Belong To (the national LGBT  youth service):

It’s a simple enough idea. Every year we provide information and materials to schools that can help to explain the problems of homophobia and discrimination to both pupils and teachers alike. The schools are then encouraged to run events and raise awareness of bullying in their school. It’s a vital step towards helping stop homophobia – and helping young LGBT people to value their own identities and live happy, fulfilled lives.

But, to reach out to all 750 secondary schools across Ireland, we urgently need help from kind and compassionate people who are willing to Stand Up! Could you be one of these Superheroes? Will you help us reach out to vulnerable young people?
