The Mothership Ep. 4: How to help your LGBTQI+ child come out

Have you thought about you’ll react if your child tells you they’re gay or trans?

How do we as parents, help our LGBTQI+ kids navigate the process of coming out? And how can we be the best allies and cheerleaders we can be going forward?

The Mothership is back and this week, activist and TV personality Paddy Smyth, makeup artist and drag performer Michael Ryan AKA Pixiewooo and content creator and YouTuber Jamie O'Herlihy join us to discuss all of this, drawing from their own unique experiences of coming out in Ireland.

A must-watch for parents and families everywhere, we discuss how to receive the news, what not to say and how to be a supportive ally going forward.

A huge thank you to our panel for sharing their stories so generously with us.
