Campaign: Stopping Homophobia

LGBT people have the same rights as everyone else. Although I am heterosexual, I have seen many young gay people face homophobia after coming out.

 

My team of Fixers and I think this is something that isn't addressed or highlighted enough in society.

 

It’s all about perception. Homosexuality remains a big taboo in Northern Ireland, which has one of the smallest LGBT communities within the UK.

 

Through our Fixers poster campaign, we want to promote equality and spread awareness of this issue. Gay people may have a different sexuality but they still have the same rights as anyone else.

Here is a list of Fixers helping me with my Fix:

 

Rois-Marie Donnelly

Ciaren Matthews

My poster campaign has had positive feedback from people, with it being described as 'excellent', 'eye-catching' and bearing a 'strong message'.
