Nicola Adams | Olympic Boxing Champion

Becoming an icon of the LGBT+ community, Nicola is currently in an inter-racial and same-sex relationship, unfortunately resulting in being a victim of both racism and homophobia.

However, Nicola is determined to combat such horrific abuse and continues to raise awareness as a proud lesbian woman. Nicola Adams has also been recognised as the Most Influential LGBT Person in Britain by The Independent and named as one of the UK’s Most Eminent Lesbian and Bisexual Women on the DIVA Powerlist.

Now a popular choice as an LGBT+ speaker for events, Nicola proudly promotes acceptance and support for the LGBT+ community.

Having battled homophobia, Nicola is passionate to see that same-sex couples continue to be normalised and stood brave in the face of complaints from Ofcom when she appeared in the same-sex couple on Strictly Come Dancing.
