Homophobia is…


Today I am grateful for knowledge, such as this:

Homophobia is …
• discriminating against lesbians and gay men because
of their sexuality
• harrassment of lesbians and gay men through namecalling,
jokes about their sexuality, bullying or teasing
• treating same sex partners diff erently to opposite
sex partners
• showing disrespect towards the lives and relationships
of lesbians and gay men
• making lesbians and gay men feel they cannot be open
about their sexuality

Homophobia in the Workplace can lead to …
• failure to attract and retain talented staff
• loss of worker self-confi dence and productivity
• harm to the health and safety of workers
• potential legal action
