Gay fairytales in primary school could have helped me

by Gizem Melek

Fairy tales are a part of every child’s life, but these are not the ordinary ones. Start by imagining the wedding of two kings.

King and King is a controversial childrens’ book written by Linda De Haan and Stern Nijland.

"Very well, Mother.... I must say, though, I've never cared much for princesses," says the prince to his mother the queen. He is being pressured to find a bride.

According to the BBC some schools are participating in a project introducing youths to same-sex relationships through a series of books.

The objective is to decrease homophobic bullying in the playground and show youngsters that homosexuality is part of everyday life.

A gay testimony

Skinflint looked through the lens of a young gay. “They should have done it ages ago” Soursdey Kheng, 21. He thinks this attempt is a little late.

Kheng told Skinflint that teachers did not consider the subject as an important issue in the past.

“The younger, the better,” says Kheng. He thinks it's better to teach same-sex relationships at a young age.

Kheng wishes to see gay literature spread across the schools in Britain.

“I hope they keep promoting it through out the years and through more schools. Only some schools are doing it now. I wish they would do wide in the area not just in London, but across all country.”

Listen to the entire interview of Soursdey Kheng.
