I was outed at work. I work within the NHS. For 14-16 months, I was called all the homophobic names. Queen, Queer, Homo, Poof, Fag, Fairy. and so on by three workplace colleagues. They were reported to one of my Supervisors. One guy appologised. the other two kept it going,for nearly a year. Till they were reported again. It now has stopped. I am in the union. And on the Regional LGBT Committee, and the National Committee for Health. I am also an Equalities Rep for Unite the Union. By reporting to them both, we are now in the Process of starting an LGBT Support Group for the NHS. It was meant for the local area at first. But it looks like it will be going nationally. Don't keep it to yourself. Report it as soon as it happens. And do not suffer in silence.

It's so big of you to report them & then actually get things fixed & now you're improving things for other people, People who may have been victimised just for being who they are. You truly are an inspiration.

Also you picked a great union! My Dad works there :)
