LGBTI students across Asia are being made to feel safe in the classroom thanks to a new campaign.
Backed by groups including the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the campaign #PurpleMySchool encourages young people to wear, draw or make something purple in support of LGBTI youth.
The Purple My School Facebook page explains: "Many young lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex people are bullied over their sexuality or gender identity, and walking into school every day can fill them with fear and dread. Show that they can feel safe with you, in your classroom or school".
Awesome initiative!
