A 270 foot, long petition of double sheets bearing thousands of footprints with the message “Stamp Out Homophobia in Our Schools” wound its way round Westminster on 7 December 2005.

Students from Birmingham University’s LGBT group, members of The Metro, Mosaic and Staying Out LGBT youth groups plus representatives from Schools Out and other passionate people from the LGBT community carried the traffic-stopping document to the DfES, on Great Smith Street.

Jacqui Smith, Minister for Schools, received the petition from Claire Anderson pf Birmingham University, who spearheaded the campaign through countless Pride festivals this summer. She was supported in the presentation by members of Staying Out and Sue Sanders of Schools Out.
