Today’s #BlackHistoryMonth LGBT+ hero is Nicola Adams, chosen by Frances who writes: As an ex-Norwicher, I nominate Nicola Adams, Boxer and now star of Strictly. I never thought I’d get into boxing but I’ve found boxercise is a really good and fun way to keep fit. Nicola Adams broke the mould to be the first female Olympic Boxing Champion.

If you would like to nominate your hero or find out more about our BAME LGBT+ Forum, please email Norwich Pride historian Stevie at
