Name: Kayleigh Clinton
Age: 17
Year of the Fix: 2019
Location: Ashford, Kent
Campaign: To tell LGBT+ teens that coming out doesn't have to be a big deal

I didn’t come out to my family until I was 15.

 

I knew I wasn’t straight for quite a long time before that, but I was terrified they would react badly if I told them.

 

When I finally did come out, I did it through a Facebook post.

 

When my family read it, they were all very supportive and my mum told me she was proud of me.

 

I had wasted so much time and energy worrying about it needlessly.

 

So I’ve made a film with Fixers to help other young people who may be struggling to come out.

 

I want them to know that it doesn’t have to be that big a deal.

 

The following people helped me with my Fix:

 

Leanne Hardy

 

Helen Davies

 

Nathan Preston-Lehore
