Dolly-Rose Campbell, the star of Coronation Street, has proven bisexual and has attributed support for her sexuality to Manchester Pride.
The soap star now wants to use her experience to help others come to terms with them as she wants to become a gay pride ambassador.
The Daily Star has reported that Dolly, who plays Gemma Winter in the popular ITV soap, was a longtime supporter of the Manchester Festival.
The 31-year-old star said, "I've been proud to be proud for over a decade now.
"The love and acceptance of the people in Manchester allowed me to accept my bisexuality and to be proud of who I am."
Now that she has taken this big step, she now wants to focus on helping others to deal with her sexuality.
Dolly Rose has become Ambassador of Manchester Pride and talked about the role.
She said, "The work that Manchester Pride has done over the year to engage with people in the LGBTQ + community of Manchester and beyond and create new opportunities makes a huge difference to the lives of many people. "
Dolly-Rose has already taken steps to make a difference by announcing the new ad for Manchester Pride. This year's festival takes place on August Bank Holiday Monday.
