“Being an ethnic minority has allowed me to understand the effects of discrimination and how it is absolutely necessary to break it down in order for societies to mature and move forward in health and well-being. It’s high time we respect, support and listen to LGBTIQ youth, more so in workplaces. That’s why the WE-Project is so important.”
