/ Back Seat S&M / Health / Charles shines a light on Lachlan Beaton

 

The story of former footy player and coach, Lachlan Beaton, was shared in the pages of the Herald-Sun over the weekend and it has travelled around the world.

Coming out through a video about marriage equality, Lachlan also shared the extreme pain of his anxiety and depression due to keeping his sexuality a secret for so long.

Lachlan’s twin brother Charles jumped in the Back Seat with Michael to talk about his brother, what coming out has done for him and his family, and how it might affect others in the mainstream.
