Clare Hobbs - LGBT role model

Director - Wessex Dance Academy

My role

I am the manager of the Wessex Dance Academy, a 12 week contemporary dance programme which aims to transform the lives Hampshire’s most vulnerable young people.

My identity

I have a boyfriend and a dog and I love yoga. A friend once told me that homosexuality is an urban myth and you can fall in love with anyone, I have never forgotten nor stopped believing that.

Why it is important to be a role model

I never under-estimate the power and importance of ‘just being there’ for someone.
