We're celebrating LGBT+ people who have made a difference to the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people in Leicestershire. We're working with public sector partners to find Leicester and Leicestershire's LGBT+ role models, are who nominated by members of the public.


Increasing visibility around sexual orientation and gender identity changes and saves lives.”

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.
