Camilla Gibson - LGBT role model

Equality and Inclusion Manager in Adults' Health and Care

My role

I have never questioned my sexuality. Society still operates in a way that it is assumed that we are heterosexual unless we say otherwise so I never have to think about sharing snippets about my family life as society is currently biased towards white straight woman and men.

Why it is important to be a role model

Role models and Allies play a key role in ensuring that LGBT rights doesn’t get pushed to the margin.. We all have the right to be with the person that we love or to be the person that we truly. I see it as my role to keep raising the awareness and to make colleagues, friends, family and my children understand that there are so many ways to live and love. No one should grow up, live or die feeling that they could not express their true identify and form the loving relationships that shapes us.
