Diversity Role Models

Charity description

Diversity Role Models logo
Diversity Role Models (“DRM”) actively seeks to prevent homophobic bullying in United Kingdom schools.

We aim to stop bullying before it happens by educating all young people about differences in sexuality. In schools where homophobic bullying is tackled, students are 60% less likely to be bullied. This environment allows young people to feel safe and focus on learning. It also prepares all students for a working environment in which homophobia is not tolerated and diversity is respected.
We communicate with students directly, using positive role models to counter negative stereotypes. We help lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) and heterosexual young people to feel comfortable and confident about sexual diversity. We help all children to understand, accept and welcome the differences they notice in others of all age groups.
Diversity role models can be lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or heterosexual. They need not be successful, attractive or brilliant. They certainly don't need to be perfect. All they need to demonstrate is that it's ok to be different.
