'How do we create a world where nobody cares I'm gay?'

YouTuber Riyadh Khalaf, author of 'Yay! You're Gay! Now What?' talks to parents about how the world can be made safer for their gay children.

If you are gay, how difficult is to show your love publicly?

5 Live's Nihal Arthanayake asked that very question on his 5 Live show in the wake of two homophobic attacks - and many people got in touch to say they had to think carefully about public displays of affection.

A few weeks later, Nihal was joined by YouTuber and author Riyadh Khalaf, author of "Yay! You're Gay! Now What? A gay boy's guide to life" to explore the issue further.

They also ask parents of gay children about the societal changes they would like to see.
