Vicky Beeching is a Writer, Broadcaster, Speaker and LGBTQ Equality Campaigner.
Vicky is a well-known contributor to UK media, appearing on Sky News, BBC One, Radio 4 and writing for publications like The Guardian and The Daily Telegraph. Her first book, Undivided, was published by HarperCollins in June 2018.
In 2014 her 'coming out' story was featured on the front pages of two UK newspapers as it created shock-waves in the Christian community both in the UK and the USA. Watch her interview, describing this journey, on Channel 4 News here.
Vicky's subsequent LGBTQ campaigning work has won awards and created significant national and international change. She has advised the United Nations on the intersection of faith and LGBTQ rights, and has been brought in as a keynote speaker on Corporate Diversity and Inclusion by companies including Adobe, KPMG, Sainsbury's, Argos, Ernst & Young and The Co-Op Group. She has also spoken in the Houses of Parliament and at both Oxford and Cambridge University.
Alongside all of these endeavours, Vicky faces significant challenges with her health. Autoimmune disease Scleroderma, along with other chronic conditions like Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and ME/CFS have cumulatively taken a toll on her over the years, becoming especially serious in 2020. Now, in 2023, this has reached a point where she is significantly disabled, mostly housebound, and uses an electric wheelchair for mobility the majority of the time. Dealing with severe autoimmune symptoms like chronic pain, joint inflammation, brain fog and chronic fatigue, plus regular joint dislocations from Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome has meant Vicky has had to step away from public-facing work and focus on trying to get the right medical help from specialists.
A handful of people have asked if there is a way to support Vicky in a practical way during this very difficult time with her health. If you're interested in that, visit the "Support Vicky " page of this website.

If you haven't read her book "UNDIVIDED" and would like to, you can get a copy from Amazon or a bookstore near you.
