My name is Ryan I am 17 years old and I am currently enrolled on a 3year professional musical theatre course at the midlands academy of dance and drama.
A month ago I came out to my parents as gay because I wanted to be honest with them about who I really was. Their response was not one I expected at all, my dad assaulted me and my mum agreed with his actions, and in one night I had lost my family and due to a restraining order I can't see them for a year. This was and still is so difficult for me and the only thing that has been getting me through is the support and amazing "family" I have at the college and at the minute they are the only family I have. However, I am really struggling financially to survive and struggling to pay for college and a place to live. So I am asking for anything you could donate to help me I am really determined to succeed and to prove so many people wrong.
Thank you :)
