Anti-Bullying Ambassador

TOM’S STORY_

Tom is an Anti-Bullying Ambassador who has bravely spoken out about his experiences of homophobic bullying and has became a powerful ambassador for other young people. He has represented The Diana Award various national events.

I’ve been bullied for the majority of my life. It was homophobic bullying for being different because I’m gay. I didn’t feel worthy and it was painful for me – it made me feel like I shouldn’t really be living. They actually told me to die. I would go home and cry and wish I could fall asleep and not wake up. It stopped quickly when I moved to a new school.
