I’m gay and I’m a Postdoctoral Fellow. //

I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Sir William Dunn School of Pathology, University of Oxford. Here I work with biomedical research, and I teach medical students. I’m originally from Denmark, and have been out since my late-teen years. For me, it was a great challenge that I didn’t know any LBGT+ people when I was coming out. I didn’t have any role models to show how life could be for someone like me. Therefore, I believe it’s really important to be out and visible today, and that way possibly inspire others who are struggling to find their way. I’ve found that being open and honest about every side of me is the easiest way to make both LGBT+ and non-LBGT+ people embrace our differences. So now I try to help people live with that same openness.
