Dame Kely Holme has mirrored on her first year as a lesbian, confessing that she feels more ‘free’ than ever.
At the age of 51, the Athlete legend disclosed in August that she is a gay woman, prior to actually opening up about fear of facing oppression for who she was while serving in the military.
Dame Kely discovered she had been gay as a 18-year-old military man in the Women’s Royal Army Corp in 1989, when she kissed a female mate, but she hid her sexual identity and assumed she might be detained up until last year.
The athletic symbol talked forthrightly on the final Lose Women incident of the year about how ‘it all’ has transformed for her since she faces into 2023.
