Rallying Against Homophobia

The Rainbow Resource Centre is holding a rally in support of the International Day Against Homophobia on Thursday, May 16, at the Manitoba Legislature.

The call to action is “Say No to Bullying and Homophobia. Show Your Support for Bill 18.”

Bill 18, THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS AMENDMENT ACT (SAFE AND INCLUSIVE SCHOOLS) is focused on updating anti-bullying legislation to include all forms of cyberbullying such as social media, text messaging and instant messaging.

The Bill also requires each school board to establish a “respect for human diversity policy” that must support student activity promoting inclusion, for example, student activities and organizations that use the name "gay-straight alliance".
