Gay Teachers

Description

Follow the lives of five inspirational gay teachers to find out how they cope with school, in this personal wellbeing video for primary and secondary teachers and headteachers.

It's estimated that there are more than 25,000 lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender teachers in the UK. Research shows that 99 per cent are too scared to come out, as four out of five have experienced homophobic abuse at work.

One teacher tells of his experiences dealing with a headteacher he felt was homophobic, whilst another teacher struggles to come out to his class.

This video investigates whether there's an endemic culture of homophobia in schools, or if schools are in fact supporting their staff.
