Diversity and Acceptance

on Tuesday, 22 August 2017.

As part of our Positive Week, Celebration Of Diversity In Our Community, the College invited guest speaker Mr Jason Ball.

Jason is an Australian Rules footballer currently playing in the AFL Yarra Ranges competition for Yarra Glen, a town located northeast of Melbourne. He is a passionate advocate for anti-homophobic messaging in sport. He has come out publicly as a gay player, believing same and both sex attracted, intersex and gender diverse people more generally, need a role model, and could benefit from his personal experience as a gay player in a male-dominated sport.

Jason shared his personal experience with our students, of realising he was gay at the age of 12 and then feeling that he had to hide his true identity so as not to disappoint his family and friends.  He spoke of his struggle to live a 'double' life.

For Jason, coming out to his teammates was unnecessary as they had figured it out for themselves. It turned out there was only so much he could hide, but aside from expecting the worst, his teammates were fully supportive.
