Founder of the Protect Your Monster project, Richard Marshall shares his intense experiences struggling with accepting his homosexuality while growing up. His story involves sensitive topics including a long bout with Anorexia and a 2 year stay in a mental health institution. Today Richard has not only conquered his demons but is giving back through his Protect Your Monster project, a series of video shorts helping youth to start learning about safe sex and other self-affirming and healthy behaviors. His negative experiences growing up and his positive responses to life’s challenges have a lot to teach us about how to grow through painful experiences and thrive.
