“There was Francesca Martinez in Grange Hill, but that was really the only person.
“And my sexuality also came into play because when there was a disabled person, she was very much the victim and she didn’t have sexuality, she was more like the normal disabled person.”
“It meant that as an adult I didn’t accept my sexuality because I thought I wasn’t gay and I wasn’t disabled.”
