14 years old Dominik Szymanski (from Poland) hung himself after experiencing severe bullying at school. In his farewell letter to his mother, he apologised for the action he was about to take and also named the bullies. According to the letter, classmates were calling him ‘Faggot’ and throwing stones at him. Constant hatred from peers became unbearable and consequently, mother found his body hung on the shoelaces..

Unfortunately Dominik is not an exception.. Inability of educational system to tackle homophobia at schools often results in these terrible cases. Similarly, Polish Minister of Education, who in fact showed up at the protest today, did not even express her sorrow and started outlining irrelevant statistics how efficient the Ministry of Education is in Poland.

Campaign Against Homophobia - KPH has organised a protest in front of the  Ministry today:
