Molly McCann has today (Wednesday 30 June) on the last day of Pride month released a book about her journey to her true self.
The short story shows the struggles and fears of someone who is finding their sexuality.
Meatball Molly and Artist Sean Webster created this book together as a passion project to help young children and shine a light on such an overlooked day to day challenge.
A short, beautifully illustrated children’s book that shows the struggles and the fears of someone who is finding their sexuality. This book is an easy read for young children who may not understand their sexuality just yet, it will allow parents to have safer conversations and promote a safe space to maybe come out in.
The book explains how hard it was for molly and also has pages where a child can also draw their story for their parents as a coming out aid. With every book sold a donation will be made to StoneWall, and help towards breaking down barriers within the LGBTQ+ community as well as stigma surrounding being queer.
StoneWall will also today be announcing Molly as one of their game changing ambassadors.
Molly’s hopes for LGBTQ+ equality in sport: “I am passionate about LGBTQ+ and its inclusion in sport because it’s where I found my space to express myself and feel safe enough to come out. I want to provide a platform to allow others to do the same.”
The book is being added to the LGBTQ+ library of education and Molly will be going into schools talking all about it.
