To raise awareness of domestic abuse in LGBT relationships
I met my ex when I was 19. At first the relationship was fine, but after six months her anger started to come out.
I was pushed, beaten and shouted at. She would demand money from me and when I wouldn't give it to her she would take my wallet and beat me.
We lived together in a shared house. I wanted to go and see my friends and family but she wouldn't let me leave and would lock me in my room for hours at a time.
I felt lost and broken.
After a year and a half I knew that I had to leave. I opened up to my friends, ended the relationship and moved back in with my parents. I've come to terms with what happened and realised that I was never the problem.
I made the film with Fixers because I wanted to highlight LGBT domestic violence and show that it's not something that is exclusive to heterosexual couples.
I want to share my story so that other people don't feel like they're on their own.
