As part of The Prince’s Trust Scotland’s commitment to the LGBT Charter of Rights and the importance we place on equality and diversity, we are proud to be supporting LGBT Youth Scotland’s ‘Silence Helps Homophobia’ campaign.

June is nationally recognised as ‘Pride Month’ and on the 28th we are launching our own campaign in our centres and online to speak up and speak out against homophobia, biphobia, and transphobia in Scotland.

Charter Champion George Bryce, said:

We support LGBT Youth Scotland’s belief that homophobia, biphobia, and transphobia should never be tolerated and that negative language and bullying should always be challenged. We want to send a positive message to young people and our partners, asking them to pledge their support and tell us why they #Wont StaySilent.

"We are also proud to announce that we will be marching at Pride Glasgow again this year, in collaboration with DELL EMC. Together we will join hands to demonstrate our support for the LGBT community and the continuous fight for LGBT liberation and rights."

Watch the Silence Helps Homophobia campaign film, to find out why speaking up and speaking out can make a difference to LGBT young people’s lives.
