2023 Shortlisted Nominee
Positive Role Model Award: Gender

Engagement and Development worker at The Clare Project, Victoria Oldman is responsible for facilitating psychosocial support groups and workshops for the trans, non-binary, and intersex community. Surplus to this, Victoria also leads on the delivery of TNBI awareness and inclusivity training to organisations in the public and private sector. Following an emotional vigil for murdered 16 year old Brianna Ghey in 2023, Victoria co-founded Trans Pride Hastings – the first official event of its kind taking place over 8 days across Hastings, St Leonards and Bexhill. This significant occasion offered 15 events that focused on community building, support and celebration, counteracting the toxic conversation about trans lives in the media. Hailed as a proactive educator of the LGBT+ community, this inspiring ambassador of trans rights shares positive experiences that enable and support others to be their true authentic selves.
