Le Refuge And SOS Homophobie Receive New Approvals To Fight Against Homophobia And Transphobia In French Schools

Le Refuge and the SOS Homophobie Association will be able to educate French students on prejudice and stereotypes of homosexuality and transsexuality.

After obtaining approval of the Minister of Education, Le Refuge, an organization that initially offers accommodation to young homeless LGBT, will be able to work to reduce homophobia and transphobia in high schools in partnership with SOS Homophobie.

Since 2010, the association has been in contact with more than 1,500 students in Languedoc-Roussillon, in Paris and PACA.

SOS Homophobie also obtained an approval in 2009, abolished in 2012 by a court following a complaint by the National Confederation of Catholic Family Associations. SOS Homophobie has finally managed to get a new license for 5 years in May 2013.
