Angry Anderson speaks to boys on DV
ANGRY by name but not by nature, Gary "Angry" Anderson yesterday shared his story of growing up in a house tainted by domestic violence.
In an amphitheatre filled with 200 Year 11 and 12 boys from across Gladstone, Gary spoke about the challenges he faced as a teenager.
"Kids have got to know they're going to go through a lot of shit and most of the time there is no help," he said.
"By being here and talking about it, these things, it lets them know it's going to be okay. I turned out okay."
Community's for Children program organiser Maree Tisdell said it was important to talk to the young men about family violence, and respectful relationships.
