On Wednesday, the minister announced the launch in May of an awareness campaign against homophobia at school, focusing on welcoming LGBT + students. Asked by Têtu magazine, Pap Ndiaye wants to cross “a decisive step” on this subject after the suicide of young Lucas. “We know that compared to heterosexual students, gay and lesbian students are four times more likely to attempt suicide, when it’s eleven times more for young trans people. We must improve their reception by tackling even more more strongly to situations of mockery, violence and harassment”says the Minister of Education.
