Olympic torchbearers: Andy Stonehill-Brooks

We're looking again at LGBT Olympic torchbearers and their nomination stories: 

Andy Stonehill-Brooks of Reading, age 25
Carrying the Flame through Combe Martin
Carrying the Flame on 21 May 2012

Andy's nomination story
I am looking to use this passion for the charities to develop Reading Pride to become a nationally recognised event for diversity, gaining acceptance for all! Additionally i would like to build Support U (the LGBT support centre charity that i created) to build a network of support centres for Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgender people across the UK that offers free support and guidance to those that need it. Therefore delivering help, but building the communities in which it operates and developing social inclusion rather than exclusion.
