The Lesbian & Gay Foundation is appealing for votes to decide which of the following eight videos it will use to promote its Enough is Enough campaign against homophobia this year.
Ahead of the campaign entering its third year on 17 May, coinciding with the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia, the LGF asked students from The Manchester College, aged 16 to 19, to write and film a series of short videos on homophobia, which can be watched below.
The two most popular videos will be used to promote the ‘Enough is Enough! – ACTION against Homophobia’ campaign from May throughout the next year.
LGF Chief Executive, Paul Martin OBE says: “We are incredibly pleased with the standard of the student’s work and it will be hard to pick the winners which is why we want the public to pick the ones that they feel best represent the ‘Enough is Enough! – ACTION against Homophobia’ campaign. The Manchester College students have shown their commitment to taking action against homophobia and we hope people will be inspired by their work to take action too.”
Vice Principal of The Manchester College, Teresa Farran said: “The Manchester College is an inclusive college and we are committed to developing our learners academically, emotionally and socially. This was a great project for our students to work on, giving them valuable experience of working on a live brief and teaching them to challenge ignorance in an innovative way. We’re extremely proud of our students’ work.”
