Anti-bul­ly­ing drive

Evening Times - - NEWS -

THREE for­mer Rangers play­ers have given their sup­port to a cam­paign to end ho­mo­pho­bic bul­ly­ing.

Gary McSwe­gan, Bobby Rus­sell and Dougie Bell are all back­ing calls for les­bian, gay, bi­sex­ual and trans­gen­der (LGBT) is­sues to be taught in schools.

The trio are back­ing the Time For In­clu­sive Ed­u­ca­tion m(TIE) cam­paign, which works to pro­mote equal­ity and ban­ish ho­mo­pho­bia in the class­room.

Gary said: “As some­one who now works in a care home, I know LGBTI young peo­ple of­ten feel iso­lated. School should be the best time of a young per­son’s life, but this of­ten isn’t the case if they iden­tify as LGBTI.”

Bobby added: “All young peo­ple should feel free to be who they are with­out fear of bul­ly­ing.”
