Such a breathe of fresh air to here a group of people who understand the importance of teaching children about LGBTQ+ people, as people not about sex. So much of the media focuses on sex which is just infuriating. Bravo all
Preston Taylor
47:04
Agreed, that is often the media focus to prevent it being taught
Rachel Green

so sorry to hear that Laura-Rose. On second day our daughter was born, two nurses outside the ward loudly said they didn't think gay people should have children. purposely so I could hear.
Preston Taylor
51:39
Laura-Rose I am so sorry that happened to you, society needs educating, the exact reason this should be taught in schools! I have so much hope for the future generation
Kryss Shane (she/her)
52:54

Ben Glackin

My mother is a Jehovahs Witness, which are encouraging homophobia in parents across the whole board. Yet, when I came out my mother she was fully accepting; but she still tried not to discuss myself, or my husband with there fellow witnesses. But outside of the religion, she is an adamant supporter. Just goes to show that the religion does not make the person. There are parents that will not let religion or the unbuild homophobia stop them loving and accepting their children. A positive story from a demographic full of horror stories.
Kryss Shane (she/her)
01:07:02
YES, Conor! <3
Emily Hamilton
01:09:32
Absolutely recognise Laura-Rose's experience, the words were love but the reality of being in front of my parents as myself is still not possible. So important that support is more than just words.
Kryss Shane (she/her)
