    Our LGBT+ Role Models

    Staff and officials across local government, the NHS, emergency services and education have shared their experiences of coming out in a series of powerful films designed to inspire others. The films - which followed an earlier booklet - were made by media production students Emilie Wright, Matthew Hart and Saul Turner as part of the ‘Our LGBT+ Role Models’ project spearheaded by the Nottinghamshire Diversity Champions Partnership.
