Since my Fixers project began I have held a workshop to offer support for people in the LGBT community. Here was some of the feedback from the first workshop:
'It’s nice to know there’s a support network for people of LGBT'.
'Well presented, plenty of information, very professional'.
'Informative in areas I am normally scared to ask about'.
'It was so informative, fun, brilliant. Can’t wait to do it again'.

I met with assembly member for Newport West, Rosemary Butler, and Shadow Minister for Equality South Wales East, Mohammad Asghar (pictured below) who have pledged their support for my project.
I have also been awarded £2500 of funding by 'O2 Think Bigger' to continue my work with the PRYDE campaign.
My project was broadcast on ITV News.
