What does your identity mean to you?

I think it’s so important that with any Community/Campaign its vital that everyone can recognise someone like them. Which is why I volunteered to be part of The Undetectables from GMFA.

If my visibility and activism helps someone else that can’t raise their head above the parapets, then I have done something worthwhile.
