Mark Tricklebank worked as a Psychopharmacologist in the drug industry before returning to academic research as a wonderful rebirth. Mark says he is "old enough to remember what LGBTQ+ life was like prior to the change in legislation" and feels he should do everything he can to cement and embed the revolution in attitude into all aspects of our lives until we get to the point when we no longer have to ask carefully whether we mind being publically associated with LGBTQ+ community.
