You have a voice. Will you use it?

Bullying – it is not only an issue for teenagers. Every day in our city, adults are victims of bullying as well. While the invalid excuses for these acts of cruelty vary widely, an ongoing target is another person’s sexual orientation. Both those who identify themselves, and are labeled by others, as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender or queer often live under the threat of being mistreated, abused, and even beaten, simply for being seen as different.

If you have ever wanted to stand up against this injustice, consider taking time this week to join those who already are. London Public Library in partner with the London Cross Cultural Learner Centre are asking you to take part in one or all of our three LGBTQ - Celebrating Diversity evenings taking place throughout the city. All three evenings will feature a screening of Matthew McLaughlin’s documentary Courage in the Face of Hate as well as a panel discussion to discuss how we can stand up against bullying.

The schedule is as follows:

Tuesday July 16 Central 1st Floor Stevenson & Hunt A+B, 6-8 pm

Wednesday July 17 Jalna Meeting Room A+B, 7-8 pm

Thursday July 18 Beacock Meeting Room A, 7-8 pm

Please come out and support your community. For more information on the issue of bullying and how to stop it, see these resources.
