Campaign: To support LGBT young people who are thinking about coming out

Coming out to family and friends can be a daunting prospect for LGBT young people and it’s vital that they are offered support.

The idea of opening up to loved ones can cause people to feel anxious, especially if they’re unsure about the reaction they will receive.

Having gone through this experience ourselves, my team and I want to share our stories to show others that there is support out there.

We want LGBT young people to know that they aren’t alone. They shouldn’t be afraid to be true to themselves.

Here is a list of Fixers helping me with this Fix:

 

Bethan MacColl Daniel McCormick
Jayson McSwiggan Lauren Mullan
Lewis Smith Stephen McGunnigle
