Human Bean (Ep 3): Love is Love

Listen up BEANS! I’m here with the latest episode of Human Bean and it is all about ‘Coming out’.

In this episode Laura and Adam, 2 awesome LGBT warriors, share their coming out stories with us and help me understand how their experiences have affected their mental health. They are both AMAZING humans, so please give them a huge round of applause.

You can read more about the LGBT community and get access to resources that can help you with difficult conversations around coming out on the Stonewall website.

I want the podcast to be as accessible as possible, so I will be providing audio transcripts of all episodes and will add these to the site when they become available. These take time and I want to get them right, so I’m sorry that they are not readily available but they are coming soon.

It really makes a huge difference to how many people see the podcast and, if you could be even more amazing, leaving us a review on Apple Podcasts also helps raise the profile of the podcast.

Next week’s topic is Domestic Violence and Sexual Abuse and so, if either of these things have affected you, please listen with caution.
