Steven is an extraordinary LGBT role model for school children. He is Stonewall’s longest standing non-celeb school role model. Over the last five years, he has dedicated huge amounts of his own time to speak to over 8,000 children in 30 schools from Newcastle to Plymouth about what it means to be LGBT and how LGBT people can lead fulfilling lives. For many children, he will be the first LGBT person they have ever met and has dispelled many of the playground myths that can so often manifest themselves in the form of bullying and abuse. Not only has Steven changed the perceptions of thousands of school children, he has also been an exemplary ambassador for the Civil Service and its values.
