Over the last two decades real progress has been made towards lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGB&T) equality in Britain. Yet, the government acknowledges that too many LGB&T people still face prejudice because of their sexual orientation or gender identity at every stage in their lives. This includes homophobic, biphobic and transphobic (HB&T) bullying in schools, which, despite efforts, remains a problem. Preventing and tackling HB&T bullying in schools is important because it can stop LGB&T people reaching their full potential. Homophobia, biphobia and transphobia can also be reproduced in schools if left unchallenged.
