Role models, take 2

In the Family section of the Guardian on Saturday there was a great article by Alice Arnold: Clare Balding, my very own national treasure.

I found it a joy to read, and wanted to share one of the last sentences with you because it speaks to what I was trying to get across in my previous post about role models:

If just one gay person or parent of a gay child sees us and thinks that maybe it’s not so bad, that you don’t have to live your life in fear, that sexuality does not define everything and it doesn’t always need to be a struggle, then we have achieved something.

Here, here!
