In this episode I have a chat with Dominic Arnall Chief Executive of Just Like Us.

Just Like Us is the LGBT+ young people's charity. We were founded five years ago for a simple reason: growing up LGBT+ is still unacceptably tough.

I read the Article LGBT+ young people in North East are the loneliest in England and had to have a chat.
