Parents have slammed the Barking and Dagenham Council in east London for staging the musical play FIT, urging 11 to 14 not to put up with gay or lesbian discrimination.

The play by Rikki Beadle Blair, being shown at Dagenham Park Community School, features school kids coming to terms with homosexuality.

"FIT has been developed to tackle the growing problem of homophobic bullying in Britain's schools," the Daily Star quoted a spokesman for his Drill Hall drama group, as saying.

However, parents refused to acknowledge the fact and say they won't allow their kids to see the play.

Maybe I'm a pretty old-fashioned sort of bloke, but I don't want my boy seeing this," said a dad of a 12-year-old boy.
