British pop star Will Young is due to read a story about same-sex parents on CBeebies, the BBC’s children’s channel, explaining that “inclusivity must start at youngest age possible”.
The singer is due to appear on the channel’s popular Bedtime Stories show, broadcast at 6.50pm every night, in order to mark LGBT history month.
Famous faces who have appeared on the show include Tom Hardy, Jessica Ennis-Hill and Tim Peake.
He has chosen the book Two Dads for his bedtime story, which is the tale of a boy who has been adopted and finds himself happily raised by two fathers.
He said: “Children’s books are one of the first ways we learn about the world around us so I’m overjoyed to be reading a story to mark LGBT History Month.
“More so than ever, families in all forms should be recognised and celebrated – whether that’s two dads, two mums, families with a mum and a dad, those with a single parent, adoptive families and so on.
“I’ve never been more sure that inclusivity starts from the youngest possible age. I hope these stories will be used for years to come.”
