Hi, my name is Finn Stannard. In 2018 I was given the amazing opportunity to speak to my high school about my experience growing up as a young gay man. I spoke about my struggles with relationships, mental health and my own understanding of myself. I also spoke about how it was through the support I received from teachers, friends, family and my schools that I felt safe and comfortable to learn.
Growing up unsure of who I was, I found the statistics about LGBT+ mental, physical and sexual health damning and was terrified I would become another one of these numbers. This is why I decided to become a role model with StartOut. I'm hoping that through conversations about both personal experiences and research I may be able to help support those who identify as LGBT+.
