Public Figures

Good episode? Give it some love!
We look up to public figures for guidance and inspiration. We celebrate their work, their art, and their actions. Queer youth especially need that; they need people to look up to. We also know that when you’re 16, you love your idols with your whole heart. Today we meet Emma, who fell in love with an indie band when they were 15. We’re asking what is the responsibility of public figures, especially those who appeal to our queer youth?
