The City of Bristol is pledging to fight homophobic bullying within its schools as they team up with LGBT charity Stonewall.

The City Council has vowed to help fight the issues surround LGBT youths today and help prevent bullying taking place within the city schools.

Recent studies have shown that nearly two thirds of LGBT students suffer from some form of homophobic bullying during their time at secondary school.

According to Bristol’s Jack FM.

Councillor Clare Campion-Smith , Bristol City Councils Cabinet Member for Children and Young People, reportedly said:

"Bullying of any kind is wrong and homophobic bullying can be particularly cruel. By joining Stonewall's Education Champions campaign, we are taking a clear stance that homophobic bullying will not be tolerated in Bristol's schools.

We will be working with Stonewall to use national best practice to inform our work to address homophobic bullying and to promote a safe and inclusive learning environment for all young people."
