“I was watching the film Beautiful Thing on TV. My mum came in and I turned it off and when she went to bed I turned it back on. I remember thinking ‘OK, that’s it’. It’s like someone had put their hand on mine and said ‘there you go’. It’s a love story with a happy ending. It’s good to have role models and now there are many more.”
