Recently I was touring a secondary school and there was a display board about 6ft by 4ft with LBGT issues in bold. Has anyone visited/seen similar displays in a school, is this common?

How is it inappropriate? Are you homophobic?

I hope so! It seems very appropriate in a secondary school.

Not inappropriate and very relevant in a high school -what's your issue?

In what way inappropriate in a secondary school? Can't teenagers be L, G, B or T then?

Sounds extremely appropriate to me.

How is this not appropriate?

What kind of inappropriate display? Instructional diagrams?

What sort of pictures were on it?

I have such posters in my classroom.

I find it utterly appropriate. Lesbian, trans, gay, bi or straight whatever you are that's just great.

Was there gay and lesbian porn plastered all over it? If not then what exactly is inappropriate? Educating children about diversity in the world they live in?

I hope this display listed resources available at the school, locally, and nationally, including books and websites. LGBT teens often feel very depressed or alone.

The title of the thread should have been rephrased as what I was asking about was whether this type of display was commonplace in secondary schools. The appropriateness I was referring to was this display having a high prominence around 11 and 12 year olds, the term "age appropriate" would have been more apt and I apologise for not having made that clear in the original message. Equally had I seen pictures of heterosexual couples kissing I would also be surprised. My post was not intended to cause offence but ask the question and could have been phrased better.

So what is your issue exactly?

18yearstooold Sat 15-Nov-14 08:07:49

Have you met an 11/12 year old lately?

Perfectly appropriate and perfectly right it should be there, educating, dispelling myths and providing support

It's not in the least bit inappropriate. One of DDs friends came out at 13 (total non-event the kids couldn't have been less bothered - much frothing from a couple of parents though)
