It Gets Better salutes the struggle and acknowledges the tough road we have to walk to be ourselves. All of us have faced challenges at times that seemed almost impossible to transcend. Nevertheless, somehow we crossed the bridge into a better future.
A varied panel of writers and thinkers – featuring Joanne Drayton, Courtney Sina Meredith, Cole Meyers, Sam Orchard, Gina Cole and Susannah Walker – look back and glance forward, talking about challenges and realisation.
While they might acknowledge it hasn’t all been rainbows and arias, they’ve still found the time for wry laughter as they walk the golden road. You need a will to survive (let alone succeed), steely grit and a sense of humour.
Chaired by wickedly good dresser, provocateur, historian and author Douglas Lloyd Jenkins.
Accessible parking, toilets and seating available – guide dogs are welcome
