Our Unsung Heroine: Vicki Carter, OFS Co-Chair

Our glorious leader, Vicki Carter has been recognised by LEAD as an Unsung Heroine – part of their campaign to mark International Women’s Day 2018 by celebrating those women who go above and beyond to help others without being asked. Click below to read a bit more about why Vicki was nominated.

Vicki also recently took part in the 1000 Londoners project during a workshop at London Sport, and talks about how she got into LGBT sport originally…and recalls her first Gay Games in New York in 1994 and what that meant to her. Well worth a watch here.

Well done and thank you to Vicki, and to all the women keeping LGBT sport clubs surging forward.
