I grew up in an inclusive family, and having a lesbian sister didn’t seem like anything different than a non lesbian sister…​I thought my all-encompassing love and understanding of people was enough grounding for when Marriage Equality was legislated in December 2017. I was wrong. It actually worked against me because I didn’t realise that there existed such a high degree of discrimination and ignorance in our current world. I also didn’t realise that the complexities and intricacies experienced actually varied from person to person, and not all people in the LGBTI+ community were just like my sister and her friends.​…​​ The Equality Network Masterclass was an emotional personal journey which had me sitting there with a lump in my throat for most of it. For the first time, I discovered how my sister and her friends saw the world through different filters. Even when I spoke to her about the masterclass, her response was, “Yeah sis, that’s how it is.” I cried and felt like I owed her a lifetime of apologies.​..​ The Masterclass changed my life​….​ I high​ly recommend The Equality Network Inclusivity Training for those who want to be genuine in their care when working with LGBTI+ individuals.
