The Riddle.

Sometimes I stand at school assembly, look around at all the kids, and wonder which of them are gay, lesbian, transgender.

Maybe quite a few, filled with the terror and angst it takes to hide their true selves so that others won't find out. It'd be so, so hard. I can't imagine.

The National spokesperson for PFLAG, Shelley Argent, contacted me recently and asked if I would share this short video.

This Friday the 17th May is International Day Against Homophobia, Intersexphobia, and Transphobia. Hashtag is #IDAHOBIT and it starts at Martin Place at 6.30am til 2pm. There'll be photobooth fun, a roaming army, and lots of supportive attendees.

        LGBT rights ... are human rights

I've heard it gets better.

But there's still a while to go.
