Ellen Jones (she/her) is an LGBTQ+ activist and doesn’t know the difference between One Direction members (ridiculous, I KNOW).
In this episode we discuss LGBTQ+ issues and mental health. Ellen shares her experiences with coming out and homophobic bullying, and how that negatively impacted her mental health.
We also talk about mental health support for LGBTQ+ people, and the catharsis of activism.
(You will also hear Ellen’s dog making interesting noises towards the end…)
Content note: discussions of self-harm, disordered eating (restriction – 13.45-14.00, 39.50-40.25, 53.45-55.10), severe homophobic bullying, and references to suicidal thoughts
I hope this episode makes you feel less alone.
