“It is so wonderful to be part of a set with 80 or 90 members where you click onto the website and you look through the names and faces and that is diversity; there’s no counting of numbers. There’s no hiding from it – its visual – and that's why visibility is so important to me. That's why self-identification - the right to self-identify - is so important me."
