Richard Harris: Closets are for Clothes


A writer from Pontypridd talks about his self-help book about people's experiences of growing up gay around the world.

Richard Harris told Jamie Owen and Louise Elliott on BBC Radio Wales how he was bullied, ridiculed and even stabbed.

He started writing a book about his experiences after being made redundant a year ago but decided to broaden its scope after more than 200 people across four continents responded to his appeal for help.
