I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Sir William Dunn School of Pathology, University of Oxford. Here I work with biomedical research, and I teach medical students. I’m originally from Denmark, and have been out since my late teen-years. For me, it was a great challenge, that I didn’t know any LBGT+ people when I was coming out. I didn’t have any role models to show how life could be for someone like me. Therefore, I believe it’s really important to be out and visible today, and that way possibly inspire others who are struggling to find their way. I have found, that being open and honest about every side of me, is the easiest way to make both LGBT+ and non-LBGT+ people embrace our differences. So now I try to help people live with that same openness.
