Matty and Jackson’s Story

Today is R U OK? Day .. a reminder to reach out and make sure your friends, colleagues and family are ok.

Creating safe spaces in schools, universities, workplaces and public spaces to show LGBTIQ+ young people that they are seen and supported. Let’s show those who are feeling ostracised, isolated or like they don’t fit in, that they’re seen, they matter and they’re not alone.

Our very own Matty and Jackson tell their stories about coming out and how it affected them personally .. both very different stories!
