“You get to exhale now?

Growing up LGBT+ in the UK today”

This is a @TwitterUK version of the talk I gave @RCPCHtweets Conference this month

I grew up in Scotland in the 80s and early 90s.

The social and media attitude towards gay people, and LGBT+ people in general, was actively hostile and toxic.

Stories like this were the norm. The way people talked about gay people around me was generally negative
In 1987, 75% of the UK population agreed with the statement:

“Homosexual activity is always or mostly wrong”

Think about that for a second

It’s only 32 years ago - 3/4 of UK population thought there was something fundamentally wrong just with being gay
