What does your identity mean to you?

Having attempted to live in other cities, I appreciate that London is a city that allows people to be themselves in relative safety. Whilst my own identity has flourished here, I feel very lucky to exist in this environment, and I know that there are many places in the world where it is increasingly unsafe to express our identities. This is something that we should all remember.
