Homophobia is alive and well in our schools
Opera North and an unamed school have recently pulled the production of an opera on the grounds that it mentions homosexuality. There have been many arguments about who was responsible and whether it is appropriate to "expose" children as young as four to the obviously horrific idea that sometimes people of the same like each other. Leaving aside the fact that neither organisation seem to have any problem "exposing" children to the idea that people of a different sex sometimes like each other, it cannot be avoided that the opera was withdrawn because it mentioned homosexuality. This is a bad thing. Sign this petition to protest it. Email ON to complain.
