Friday night saw the ITV National Diversity Awards ceremony come to Liverpool’s Anglican Cathedral in a glorious celebration of diversity and inclusion.
Despite Mr Ntanos, who was nominated in the category of Positive Role Model LGBT+, just missing out on the top prize he could not have been more proud to have been part of the event.
He explained; I am truly humbled to have been nominated for this award and by all the comments and support I have received throughout this process.
“I came into gender affirming surgery by chance and the more time I spend with the trans community, listening to the challenges they face and working with them to achieve the outcomes they desire, the more I realise the crucial role which I have to play as an ally in advocating for them.
“I will continue to fight for the rights of my trans and non-binary siblings who are an endless source of inspiration to me for their courage and their resilience. Trans liberation will set us all free.”
