Spark To Your Success - Gender and Sexual Identity

Bella - My gay awakening was watching Glee

Listen on

Episode notes

Welcome to The Spark To Your Success special series about sexual and gender identity.

You're going to hear the stories of young people (and a couple of young at heart people) who identify as LGBTQ+ or who support somebody who belongs to the community.

The stories are honest and open accounts of each person’s journey of self-discovery around sexual and gender identity. They share the questions they had, fears they felt, their coming out experience and how they were treated by others.

In this episode you hear from Bella. She identifies as bisexual, although she says in the interview with Tayshan she's actually still questioning that and discovering herself still. As well as describing her gay awakening while watching Glee and Orange Is The New Black, Bella also discusses the importance of not sexualising sexual identity.

As you would expect the discussion involves some adult themes.
