LGBTIQ rights

We are not all the same, but we are all equal. Whether you're lesbian, gay, bisexual, heterosexual, transgender, intersex, queer or questioning, you have the right to equal opportunity. It’s against the law for someone to treat you unfairly or bully you because of your sexual orientation or gender identity.

Jakub's story

"Me being gay has never really bothered anyone else, but this guy had a real problem with it. He made a point of using ‘gay’ and ‘homo’ as an insult when I was around and couldn’t help making snide remarks about gay people and putting on a fake lisp."
