Stonewall has booked space for advertising featuring the slogan 'Some people are gay. Get over it!' across 500 display panels and 20 major railway station advertising screens at sites across England and Wales over the next fortnight.

The advertising is a continuation of the charity's Education for All campaign to tackle homophobic bullying in schools.

"A taster campaign of the billboards saw some defaced with homophobic graffiti, reminding us that prejudice is alive in Britain," said Ben Summerskill, Stonewall's chief executive.

Prime Minister Gordon Brown, comedians Alan Carr and Rhona Cameron and pop star Dannii Minogue are among politicians and celebrities backing the campaign.
