My account had been hacked for the past 2 months. I have lost roughly 6000 followers but I am determined to bounce back, so I can continue to reach out about racing and improve the diversity in sport. It would help me massively if you could follow, repost and share my insta page

We're calling on everyone who would've taken part in to make an act of allyship for an LGBT+ community other than their own. Our goal is to reach 30,000 acts - one for every person who would've marched. Hit the ❤️ button to make your pledge.
