Donegal Youth Council LGBT “Chalk It up” in the Diamond, Donegal Town, Saturday 8th March as part of the Belong To Stand Up week. Stand Up week is a national week long campaign which is co-ordinated by Belong To. The Stand Up campaign was launched nationally in 2012 and aims to raise awareness and tackle homophobia and homophobic bullying, transphobia and transphobic bullying and help to create positive understanding and support for LGBT people. Donegal Youth Councillors identified homophobic bullying as a major issue to work on this year. Through a new cross border partnership with the WIMPS project in Northern Ireland they combined to produce a video of the event themselves.
Donegal Youth Council is funded by the Donegal County Council, HSE Health Promotion and the Department of Children & Youth Affairs and is co-ordinated by the Donegal Youth Service at local level.
