Thai Harrison is a fourteen year old gay teenager who lied to everyone about his sexuality. Now he is coming out, but at what price?
85% of LGB people aged under 25 say they were the victims of homophobic bullying at school. 56% of them have considered self-harming. 44% of them have gone through with it. 28% have contemplated suicide. Thousands a year have gone through with it. This is the story of one victim of homophobic bullying and the effects it has on his life.
Thai Harrison is a fourteen year old schoolboy living in Southampton, England. He first realised he was gay at the age of eleven when he noticed his infatuation with his P.E teacher and tutor, Mr. Hayes. When he becomes the target of homophobic bullying he decides to change himself to become accepted by others at his school.
Now fourteen, Thai regrets the choice he made years ago, knowing its all an act. After some helpful advice, he has decided to be true to himself, announce his sexuality and follow his dreams as a fashion designer. But at what cost?
What effects will it have on Thai? Will he handle it, or will it be too much? Will anyone defend him, or will he be completely alone?
