Jonathan Charlesworth

Are you eager to challenge homophobic name-calling in your school but unconfident about how to go about it? Would you recognise homophobic bullying, and what can your school do about it?

"That's So Gay!" is an accessible, practical guide to making your school a safer place and creating an inclusive bully-free culture. It shows you what homophobic bullying looks like, who experiences it, and explores the reasons young people bully others homophobically. It also reveals why young people are often reluctant to report homophobic bullying, the increasing role played by the internet, and the profound effects bullying can have well into adulthood. Adopting a whole-school approach, this book provides practical guidance on prevention, working with those who bully, and handling disclosures, as well as advice on anti-bullying policies.

Written by an expert in the field, this is a vital guide for schools, teachers and anyone with a duty of care towards young people.
