Amelia is The Proud Trust’s Strategic Director. The Proud Trust is a life saving and life-changing organisation supporting LGBT+ young people. She dreamed of being Prime Minister or Pope when she was young. As she grew older she learned more about discrimination and oppression, and her own sexuality. She became passionate about global LGBT+ rights, social justice and environmental issues. After studying at the University of Manchester, she completed a post graduate Diploma in Law, but was drawn more towards social enterprise in order to make a social change. She co-founded The Proud Trust 15 years ago, and continues to co-lead the organisation. She has been active in local politics and the Cooperative movement, and is active with other community causes and groups too. She still looks forward to the day when an out lesbian becomes Pope (or Prime Minister).
