Thinkbeforeyouspeak.com has released its new campaign on the issue of teens experience homophobic remarks and harassment.
” This campaign aims to raise awareness about the prevalence and consequences of anti-LGBT bias and behavior in America’s schools. Ultimately, the goal is to reduce and prevent the use of homophobic language in an effort to create a more positive environment for LGBT teens. The campaign also aims to reach adults, including school personnel and parents; their support of this message is crucial to the success of efforts to change behavior.”
I’d say this helps a lot more people than teens, really, many adults are still acting like a kid.
They have also enlisted Wanda Sykes and Hillary Duff to appear in two PSAs that draw attention to the phrase “that’s so gay” and its interpretations.

Poppy Shakespeareby Clare Allan: You are probably wondering; “Wait, isn’t that a movie shown on Channel 4 starring Anna Maxwell Martin (Doctor Who, Becoming Jane) and Naomie Harris (28 Days Later, Pirates of the Caribbean, Miami Vice) from the producers of The Last King of Scotland ?

Upon their successful first album, The Dø has just released their second music video ‘At last‘. Watch out for oranges, because you get many of them in this video. The story revolve around people in the dance floor with unwhole oranges trying to find the remainding half/ perfect match. The smart thing is that the video points out the ‘perfect match’ dose not necessarily be who you want it to be. You see people fighting just to try to squeeze their oranges to make it fit. Of course, the perfect match may also be of the same sex or a totally different age group, because there are no rules.
