Age: 25
Year of the Fix: 2016
Location: Gravesend, Kent
Campaign: To campaign against homophobic abuse

I came out as gay at the age of 16.

 

At first, people would joke about my sexuality and fail to realise that their words and actions were deeply offensive and made me feel victimised.

 

I want to change the negative attitudes around homosexuality and show people there is a fine line between banter and bullying.

 

I’ve teamed up with Fixers on a campaign to make others think twice about how their actions could cause offence to others.

Here is a list of Fixers helping me with this Fix:

 

Amber-Rose Young

Bradley Bowyer

Claire Hardaker, Naked Frank Theatre

Dily Simms

Maisie White

Megan Prior

Molly Howells

Morgan Laming

Niamh Doherty

Nicole Nettleingham

Skye Johnson

Sonny Nettleingham
