2-3 young people every week are ending their lives due to bullying. Unfortunately members of the LBGTQIA+ community are at higher risk. A staggering 66% of Australian LGBTQIA+ youth experience bullying or harassment based upon their identity.
Kind is Cool was founded with the intent to lead by example & show younger generations that being KIND IS COOL. The organisation has just released it's "Pride Collection", with a portion of proceeds going to the Youth Projects & Minus 8 charities. Both work closely with the LGBTQIA+ community.
In this episode, Byron Cooke and Perri Lee speak to Jude Munro - one of the founding members of the gay liberation movement in the 1970's. Jude and many other high profile members of the LGBTQIA+ community have jumped on board to promote the 2022 Pride Collection. Kind Is Cool founder Amber Wilkinson also joins the conversation.
