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."
Nominations should be made by the end of March. The judging panel will feature a representative from the county council, Leicestershire Fire and Rescue, Charnwood Borough Council, Leicestershire Police and University of Leicester.
