Abstract
A group of teenagers plan Human Rights Day in their high school. Carla and Jamie believe homophobia should be included alongside racism and sexism as a form of prejudice and oppression. The video raises questions such as: What is homophobia? What if your best friend was one of them? What would you do if the class said you were one of them? The video focusses on homophobia and discrimination, not sexual behaviour.
