Imagine if you could talk to your 7-year-old self, what would you tell them? In a new video created by GLHV and Minus18, they asked straight people what advice they would give to their younger selves about how to deal with LGBT people they come across in their lives.
Minus 18 is the largest support network for LGBT teenagers in Australia. Their new anti-bullying campaign is a wonderful and personal thought-provoking way to talk about this subject. The two guys featured above, along with others, talk about their experiences. The one on the right even introduces you to his best gay friend at the end of the clip.
If I could go back in time and dole my sage wisdom to my former bratty self, I would advise him to come out sooner, be nicer to his parents, avoid those two years going down the wrong path and most importantly… warn him about some heinous fashion choices ;) Check out the awesome anti-homophobia video below.
Thoughts on the clip? What advice would you give yourself? Sound off below.
