Coming out: How an 18-year-old filmed himself telling his parents

Growing up in an isolated Cumbrian town, 18-year-old Ross has always hidden his sexuality from his parents and his local community.

He dreams of escaping to lead an openly gay life at Salford University - but first he has to get the right A level grades.

Ross decides that, if he succeeds, he’s going to come out to his parents just before he leaves.

And, after watching YouTube videos of young Americans coming out to their parents, he’s decided to film it.
