Sir Ian McKellen will be touring schools for the following three months to help promote Stonewall’s campaign to prevent homophobic bullying in schools around the nation.

Speaking to PinkPaper.com, McKellen said about the initiative called Stonewall’s Education Champions Programme, which aims to help local authorities prevent homophobic bullying.

"Until I visited secondary schools recently, I hadn’t realised how much anti-gay bullying goes on, throughout the education system. By talking frankly about my own life as a gay man and listening to the concerns of staff and students, parents and governors, I hope the visits arranged by Stonewall may make a difference in the classroom and the playground and also give confidence to gay students about their lives in the future."
