Posters designed to tackle homophobic bullying in schools have been reprinted in Gaelic.

Stonewall Scotland said it was now offering its "straight-talking" poster campaign to Gaelic-speaking areas across the country.

The lesbian, gay and bisexual rights charity said English versions had already been well-received in schools.

The poster reads "Tha cuid de dhaoine gay. Gabh ris!", which is translated as "Some people are gay. Get over it!"

A YouGov poll for Stonewall found that 90% of secondary school teachers said children and young people - regardless of their sexual orientation - experienced homophobic bullying in school.

An English language version of the slogan already features on posters, postcards and stickers that have been distributed to every secondary school in Scotland.

A Stonewall Scotland spokesperson said: "It has been so well-received by pupils and teachers that the message has gone beyond the school gates to appear on billboards and bus stops."
