What better way to honour sex, than to talk about it? It's not something we do often. For far to many talking about Sex Ed conjures thoughts of condoms on bananas, awkward silences and feelings of discomfort.
There is simply no excuse for the continued persecution, discrimination and inequality gay people face. How can a religion that champions love and compassion continue to persecute the 1 in 10 people in this world who are gay?
If you're a gay guy in the 21st century, you'll have heard it all before; 'masc4masc', 'straight acting only', 'no fems'. Hook-up apps are littered with self-professed masculine men who don't want anything sexually from more feminine gay guys.
Attending your first funeral is strange, almost surreal. Speaking at a funeral is even stranger, and as someone who has never practised a faith I almost felt like a fraud. Speaking the words of God, as it were, was a peculiar experience, but I'm glad I did it.
The amazing thing about growing up through all of that misogyny is coming out the other end and realising that it's all completely ridiculous. I started questioning every judgement I made. After making a comment about a half-naked female singer on TV, I would then ask myself, who taught you that that's wrong?
Adele labelled "Hello" her "make-up record". She said: "I'm making up with myself. Making up for lost time. Making up for everything I ever did and never did". At 21, I'm realising that maybe it's time to make up with myself.
I feel politicians take for granted that the youth of today have a full comprehension of the political system and think it's important to spell out the implications of every decision made that will have a direct impact on the lives of the people they serve. So before you switch TV channels when you see this story on the news, maybe stop for a second and consider what it could mean in the long run.
If there was ever a time for the Government to reconsider their opposition to statutory SRE, it is now. That is why, later today, I will lead a Parliamentary debate calling on the Government to finally make SRE a statutory requirement in all state-funded schools - including academies, free schools and any new grammar schools which they set up.
As NUS president, I have made solidarity with migrants a central element of my priority campaign - Liberate Education. I want to make our movement's solidarity practical and effective. I have already added NUS' support to the demonstration outside Downing Street on Monday 30 January at 6pm. I hope as many students as possible will make their voices and their anger heard.
Like it or not, times are changing and the way relationships are made is changing, and there is nothing wrong with that. We need to stop being taught that how we live is wrong. Millenials need to stop being demonised.
Too often we get caught up in following a craze. Follow this one so that the UK too can stand alongside the Netherlands - who have already pledged to try and work with countries around the world to block the harm - in protecting those most affected but least able to defend themselves.
