Hot topic: Homophobia

Beyond Blue has re-launched its Stop. Think. Respect: Left Hand campaign in response to alarming levels of homophobia in young men aged 14 to 17.

Panorama reporter Emma D’Agostino investigates: what’s fuelling the discrimination? How is homophobia being dealt with? And what needs to be done next?

Featuring insights from Headspace Sunshine Youth Action Group, Beyond Blue, Minister for Equality Martin Foley and RMIT Queer Officer Mo Taha.

Aired April 2 at 4.30pm on SYN.
