Photo Gallery: Kingston University students stand up to bullying

Anti-Bullying Week is an international event held annually to raise awareness about different kinds of bullying, and bullying prevention.

Kingston’s LGBTQ+ Officer Amy Claire Bush sought to raise awareness about the levels of homophobia, biphobia and transphobia in our community by starting a photo campaign on Penrhyn Road campus. A number of students took part, each holding up a sign explaining their personal reason for standing up to bullying.

Bush said: “I hope that as a result of this event minority communities who face similarly unjustified discrimination feel solidarity on campus, and that people will feel confident to be an active bystander if they witness such activity.”
