The South Etobicoke Youth Assembly (SEYA) and LAMP Community Health Centre will host an anti-bullying workshop promoting LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer) awareness and acceptance next week.
On Wednesday, Dec. 7 at 6 p.m., SEYA and LAMP invite students, parents and interested community members out to hear the "emotional and touching" story of Jeremy Dias, a young man who was bullied in school because he was gay.
This will be the first in a series of workshops hosted by SEYA and LAMP to speak out against homophobic and transphobic bullying, and is aimed at broadening the understanding of the serious impact homophobic bullying has on an individual.
LAMP is located at 185 Fifth St. The workshop will take place upstairs in the community room.
