Directions Youth Services Centre: Homophobia

Every kid on the street has a story. Many of the homeless youth on our streets have escaped from homes filled with abuse and violence. Directions is a 24 hour resource centre where they can find the support and tools they need to get off the streets for good.

I really like these, but the repetition of the word 'streets' weakens the copy slightly, in my humble opinion.

Really good art, but copy could be a little more appealing, very good campain though.
(Muy buena direccion de arte, pero el copy podria ser más impactante en mi opinión, la campaña sin embargo se me hace muy buena).

this one is more about verbal abuse than physical in my opinion. The other one with the girl with the black eye is clearly physical abuse. This guy is clearly gay and probably either kicked out or left because of crappy parents. Physical abuse doesn't always play into it.
