Michael Stephens - Founder of Create Space

"I’ve often hidden parts of my ‘self’ out of fear, shame or rejection. From hiding my sexuality as a child, to as a adult dealing with complex mental health issues in secret. That’s why I created this platform for Queer Leaders; to create a space for positive change. For all those of us still looking for support, connection and solutions.” Michael Stephens
