Catherine: We have had so much positive feedback about the Beautiful Women Campaign. Well done BreastScreen Victoria. This included one of the participants who sent us an email from her friend of 18 years, living in the UK. The email read:
“Hiya …!! I wanted to share this with you – a friend of mine has recently come out as a lesbian and was really struggling with where to go from that point, and with people accepting her. She called me yesterday, in great excitement, to tell me that she’d found something that really cheered her up: a photography project all the way from Melbourne of LGBT women – and lo and behold, who’s the first picture? I was able to delightedly tell her, “That’s my friend Barb!!” She wanted me to tell you that seeing you (and all the other women) gave her a massive boost.”
We love that The Beautiful Women Campaign is sending the message to LGBTI women that they are valued.
