Creating a safe space for LGBTQ+ members

For as long as she can remember, Nadia “Aidan” Holmes has always felt like she was born to be a voice for the voiceless. But not in a way that one would ever begin to imagine.

The bubbly and effortlessly beautiful Nadia identifies as a “pansexual” and says she is increasingly finding herself becoming an advocate for people like herself and other members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual & queer (LGBTQ+) community.

But what exactly is a pansexual?

Nadia explained as simply as she could that it was someone who was attracted to a connection whether it came from a man or woman.

“There is bisexuality, which means you have sex with both men and women and you’re attracted to both men and women. Pan-sexuality is like that but more so. you don’t look at gender, you look at a connection and energy and the person’s personality.  You’re not attracted to the person because that person has breasts and a vagina or a penis. It’s fluid,” she explained.
