Location: Newport, South Wales
Campaign: To show that LGBT+ young people should not be defined by their sexuality

It’s my view that people label others on a daily basis, whether they’re from the LGBT+ community or not.

As someone who identifies as LGBT+, I’ve been surprised by the number of people who feel it’s okay to use labels such as ‘bender’. I have noticed that some see me in a certain light and treat me as though I’m different. 

The truth is, we are all unique and nobody should be judged or insulted simply for being who they are.

With Fixers, I want to tackle this issue – showing that it’s wrong to identify, define or bully people using labels.
