Increasing visibility around sexual orientation and gender identity changes and saves lives.”Person:Dr Elly Barnes MBE, LGBT+ role model
Role models are massively important to LGBT+ people – a role model is someone to look up to, who celebrates diversity, champions equality and has a voice on behalf of those who need the most support. We're proud of the fact that several of Leicestershire's LGBT+ role models work for Leicestershire County Council. Whether you identify as LGBT+, or are an ally of LGBT+ people, be inspired by these stories and think about how you can be a role model too.
I’m proud of the fact that people around me at the county council have felt supported to be out at work.Person:Tracy Ward, LGBT+ role model
