Growing up in Leigh Creek, the Our Town Cummins peer support connector never saw much representation of the LGBTQIA+ community that he is now a part of. “You just learnt to live the straight life, and go on with life,” he said. Tosold moved to Cummins on the Eyre Peninsula in 1996, marrying a local girl and having two children, until eight years ago he made the decision to come out as gay. “I couldn’t do it any more, for my mental health,” he said. “It was a bit of a culture shock because everyone knew me as Sean, Millie’s husband… and then I became just, the gay bloke. I had to really prove that I had a voice and I had something to give to the community.”
