HAZELL DEAN joins the definitive guide to the 100 people in the LGBTQI community – and allies – who are dedicated to working towards true LGBTQI equality and inclusion.
Although the United Kingdom enjoys some of the most progressive equality legislation on the planet, workplace equality, equal marriage and the right to adopt children – while important – have not been able to wipe out homophobia.
Homophobic and transphobic hate crimes are on the rise, Twitter is often a cesspool of gay hatred and parents are openly objecting to their children being taught that not all relationships involve one man and one woman.
That’s why the Pride Power List is more important than ever. We believe that by shining a light on those who are prepared to stand up and be counted, we encourage others to do the same.
People in the public eye – whether politicians, musicians, media personalities, writers, sportspeople or business leaders – have a platform, and everyone at the Pride Power List thanks every single name featured here for using that platform for the common good.”
