  3. A Brief on school bullying on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity: LGBT-friendly Thailand?

    The analysis presented here is from a study commissioned by UNESCO Bangkok and Plan International Thailand, and conducted by Mahidol University.

  6. Sexuality and homophobia school audit for students. How is your school doing?

    This audit tool provides an opportunity for powerful learning through student enquiry within the school’s own community. Many schools are not very supportive places for students who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, or simply unsure about their sexuality. Every student has a right to feel safe at school, and to get support when they need it. This questionnaire has been designed to find out from students how supportive their own school is for students who are attracted to people of the same sex. …
