The actress spoke about Manchester Pride and noted that the events like this taught her to be proud of her own bisexual identity. This is the first time when Campbell revealed her sexuality publicly. Campbell, who plays Gemma Winter in the hit soap opera Coronation Street, is also taking on a role as an ambassador for Manchester Pride, which she attends annually for more than a decade and says that the Manchester folks at the Pride are so loving and accepting that it was easy for her to learn to embrace her bisexuality among them. “The work that Manchester Pride does throughout the year to engage with and create opportunities for people in Manchester’s LGBTQ+ community and beyond makes a huge difference to so many people’s lives,” she told Daily Star. Campbell has also provided the voiceover for Manchester Pride’s new advert promoting the festival set for the August Bank Holiday weekend.
