Beauty from the Heart
How make-up inspires inclusivity with Gary Thompson, The Plastic Boy
Today I’m talking to Gary Thompson, also known as the Plastic Boy. Gary shares his insights on the beauty industry, from how we can all work towards a more inclusive landscape, to the importance of being a role model to younger LGBT boys like him.
We also reminisce on both of our experiences working in beauty in retail, and have a few laughs about experiences with disgruntled customers… if you’ve ever worked on the beauty shop floor, I think you’ll relate to this one!
This episode marks the end of series 2 of Beauty from the Heart. Thank you for listening and I’ll be back soon with more guests to get to know and feel inspired by. XXX
