Many pupils in Wales feel their school is not a safe place to be openly gay, a survey suggests.
The survey of 600 pupils was carried out during Safe Space, a workshop aimed at tackling homophobic bullying.
Some 79% thought their school was not safe for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people to be open about their sexuality.
The release of the report coincides with the launch of a charity, the LGBT Excellence Centre Wales.
