Watch - Is It Okay To Be Left Handed?

Discrimination against gay and lesbian people is compared with the past practice of forcing left-handed children to use their right hand in a new campaign launched by anti-depression group Beyondblue and charity group Movember. The campaign urges Australians to stop discriminating against people because of their sexual orientation or gender identity. 

Being left-handed is used as a metaphor for being gay in the ads, referring to the practice of past generations which forced children born left-handed to use their right hand, as this was considered to be “correct”. “Imagine being made to feel like crap just for being left handed,” the campaign states.
