WESTLIFE star MARK FEEHILY is spearheading a campaign to help fight homophobic bullying in Britain's schools.
The singer - who revealed he was gay in August 2005 - joined Stonewall's campaign because he was bullied as a boy.
He says, "It's not just individual bullying, it's the way kids in classrooms use the word gay to mean bad - gay trainers, a gay jacket they don't like - that needs to be tackled.
"People need to know that a throwaway remark at school will stab certain members of the class in the heart."
Feehily joins Sir Ian MCKellan, The Feeling star Dan Gillespie Sells, and Dannii Minogue in backing the nationwide campaign.
