Freedom Stories: Helen's story

Video By: Mario BrceMario Brce

At the age of 17, Helen realised that she was attracted to women. She found it was scary at first, but she was able to find support when she turned to the people and the services around her.

Together with ACON, ReachOut.com worked with a bunch of talented filmmakers and storytellers to produce 5 digital stories. Our storytellers share their own experiences in coming to terms with their sexuality and/or gender, and what they wish they knew then, that they know now. These stories present a picture of diversity, strength and resilience, with the aim of supporting LGBTIQ people who may be going through something similar.
