Sir Ian McKellen on the prominence of anti-gay bullying

By Greg Hernandez

HollywoodNews.com: Nice to see Sir Ian McKellen continuing to work to educate people about homophobic bullying in schools.

The ‘Lord of the Rings,’ ‘X-Men’ and ‘Gods and Monsters’ star visited a Harrogate’s Rossett School in the UK in an event organized by Stonewall’s Education Champions Program which helps schools prevent and tackle homophobic bullying.

The actor co-founded Stonewall in response to Section 28 of the Local Government Act that legislated against what it considered the promotion of homosexuality within the education system.

Recent YouGov research for Stonewall found that nine in 10 teachers said their pupils currently experienced homophobic bullying, but nine in 10 had never received any training on how to tackle and prevent it.

Sir Ian said to the BBC: “Until I visited secondary schools recently, I hadn’t realized how much anti-gay bullying goes on, throughout the education system.”
