I have never had a community of people around me who were casually and unassumingly accepting and supportive of my identity, so I failed to realise the difference in my life that would make. Yet, Pinnacle has easily offered me this and a mentor whose willing to commit to making time for me to help in my academic goals and aspirations.

I felt incredibly impassioned having met the largest group of other LGBT people in my life. It is much easier to imagine a future where I can be myself and I am immensely grateful to Pinnacle for this, as well as their support.
