Can a pop singer and the British Parliament change how the word “gay” is used? Will Young hopes so.
British singer and songwriter Will Young knows the scars that can be left by kids who are bullied for being gay, or even being perceived as gay. He knows that it’s still being used in school as an insult.
Now, he’s lobbying the British Government to change how the next generation uses that word. Could a high profile campaign from a well-known pop singer make a difference?
Public and Parlimentary support is growing. Now, can the schoolroom culture that brushes off these words as “no big deal” change?
