My experience in Tasmanian faith-based schools has left me with firm views on the value of Tasmania's anti-discrimination laws. This booklet not only opposed marriage equality, but did so in ways that were unnecessarily negative. I came out as gay in Year 9 at a Tasmanian Catholic school. ABC teams share the story behind the story and insights into the making of digital, TV and radio content. It was part of the school's ethos. Today, I go hiking, I go camping, I hang out at the lake. I even contemplated pretending I was straight.

Right after I realised it, I was like: VAD changes my death, and my life I may have only five years left to live, but knowing that I can now choose a gentle death has calmed the fear and anxiety I have lived with for so long. They all took it well.
