Here at last - Lis' story
Lis is one of the Trust's LGBT Forum Members and is captured in this short documentary exploring her life and loves as a gay parent. This inspirational film really does capture the diversity within diversity; being gay, female, a parent, in a same sex relationship, Jewish with a disability. Lis' openness and honesty is a testament to how welcoming an environment Nottinghamshire Healthcare and it's LGBT Forum really is.
