told that it's wrong and it's something that you should
laugh at and bully so you still get the bullies and things.
But one of the most positive experiences
I had was a day after a school visit.
The school phoned me up and said
can I just tell you what happened yesterday
so I said yes and they said a 15 year old student,
the day after my talk, went into the classroom,
said to the teacher, said to his teacher,
can I speak to the class please
and she said yes, why, he said I just want to speak
about that talk we had yesterday.
So this youngster stood up in front of all his classmates
and he said I want to apologize to everyone
because I've been a bully.
I've been bullying LGBT people for a long time now
and I thought it was really funny.
And I thought it was good to do
and I realized I didn't understand what it mean to be LGBT.
And I'm really embarrassed about my attitude
and I want to stand up in front of everybody
and say how sorry I am.
And that was just wonderful to me.
That was absolutely what it's all about.
