International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia

17 May 2010

On International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia, the Lesbian & Gay Foundation has launched Enough is Enough! Action Against Homophobia.

The campaign aims to highlight the worrying rise in homophobic attacks, to fight for justice and to raise awareness of how homophobia can impact on all lives, regardless of sexuality. Most of all we need to let people know that homophobia is unacceptable and needs to stop. Coronation Street star and LGF patron
