A host of high-profile celebrities are joining Stonewall in its widespread campaign against homophobic bullying in Britain's schools.

Beloved stars such as Sir Ian McKellen, Dannii Minogue, Westlife's Mark Feehily, comedian Alan Carr, The Feeling's frontman Dan Gillespie Sells, and actor James Sutton were featured in the recent issue of Attitude magazine wearing t-shirts with the campaign's slogan: Some people are gay. Get over it!

"As pupils return to school, it's fitting that Stonewall's campaign to tackle homophobic bullying has been given such a boost," explained Matthew Todd, editor of Attitude magazine.

"Celebrity support is a way of getting the message out--especially to younger people--that homophobic bullying is unacceptable."

After starting on a small scale as posters, postcards and stickers sent out to schools, the campaign took its 'Some people are gay. Get over it!' slogan to the public as a billboard campaign in 600 locations across the UK. The new push from the celebrities is bound to spread awareness about this important social topic even further. Stats for Rallying Against Homophobia Trending: Older & Average
