Nominate your LGBT+ role models

We're relaunching the search for Leicester and Leicestershire's LGBT+ role models – people who have made a difference for other LGBT+ people and are from, or have strong link with, the area.

Multicoloured paints in rainbow colours

Our previous LGBT+ role models include Dr Elly Barnes MBE - the founder and CEO of Educate and Celebrate, who was born and grew up in Leicestershire. Elly has devoted her career to changing the face of the education system by making establishments from nurseries to universities LGBT+ friendly.

She says, "Every conversation is important to move forward with breaking down barriers to LGBT+ inclusion. Together we can create cohesive school communities."
