Help for schools to tackle homophobic bullying

Every secondary school in Britain is to receive a copy of Stonewall's new DVD film 'FIT' - a feature film for schools to tackle homophobic bullying. The storyline uses hip-hop, humour, streetwear and lively writing to communicate with young people in a way that makes it easy for them to engage with the issues raised. FIT is an adaptation of Stonewall's play for schools written by Rikki Beadle-Blair and Team Angelica, which was seen on tour by 20,000 pupils in Britain in 2008 and 2009.
