Irish non-profit Belong To has just launched one of the best anti-bullying campaigns that we have ever seen. Called “Stand Up – To Homophobic Bullying,” it targets youth and demonstrates to young people that they can and should stand up to gay bullying wherever and whenever you see it.
It makes it normal and cool to stand up for gay friends.
This video is just so cute and inspiring that it made our hearts soar and our eyes swell. We truly wish that this was the way that people reacted to bullying all the time. Unfortunately, we know all too often that kids fall into the herd mentality and just laugh right along when bullying happens to someone.
We hope that this video succeeds in inspiring young people to stand up for those bullied and say this is not cool with me.
