The fight for equality with Nicola Adams

Where her dream began

We’re proud to share Nicola’s story of her fight to become the female boxing World Champion in the male-dominated sport. We followed Nicola as she returned to her roots in Leeds, England, to tell her story of overcoming challenges, coming out as bisexual, and achieving every athlete’s dream.

“It doesn’t matter about your sexuality, colour, or gender”

As an inspiring member of the LGBTQ community, Nicola showed the world that your sexuality, race, or gender doesn’t matter when it comes to achieving your dreams. Nicola was named the most influential LGBTQ person in Britain by The Independent in 2012.
