Cannes Lions 2017: LGBT Heroes with Jackie Stevenson

Published by

We took a break from the sun and sat with Jackie Stevenson, Founder & Global Managing Director of The Brooklyn Brothers at Havas Cafe during Cannes Lions to chat about the importance of entertainment in communications and conversations in diversity.

Jackie emphasised that they love to create stories that generate excitement at The Brooklyn Brothers and she is extremely excited to announce a collaboration with Brown Eyed Boy and Sir Ian McKellen where they'll develop a series of short films called ‘LGBT Heroes’.

While gently lobbying Hollywood, Jackie told us that they will be retelling great superhero stories by placing LGBT heroes at the center.

“It is so important that we get new LGBT heroes in our great stories as part of the diversity debate”
