The Closet - Episode Two  Ruby Greenhalgh

This is The Closet. A three part podcast series sharing the stories of nine young people who identify as part of the rainbow community, and advocating for more media representation of LGBTQIA+ people.

In Episode Two, "Sharing", you'll hear how it feels to go through the process of coming out, as well as the reactions of friends and family. We discuss how the normalisation of queerness in the media is essential to make the act of coming out as smooth and as simple as possible.

For any young person struggling with their identity, reach out: QTOPIA has an amazing wealth of resources available.

Or, contact Alice Anderson at connect@qtopia.org.nz for a more direct link.
