The Albert Kennedy Trust is a charity which helps LGBT youth who have been left homeless or suffered domestic violence after coming out to their families. If you hadn’t heard of them before now, don’t worry – neither had I.

This should raise the charity’s profile, however: it’s a new advert featuring gay celebrities, showing how their lives could have turned out without the support they were lucky enough to have.

It’s powerful stuff, and it certainly couldn’t hurt to send a few quid AKT’s way.

    That recording is pretty overused at the moment, but nevertheless it’s a really powerful ad… even before you suddenly get to the “Whoa… that’s Ian McKellen” moment.
