A trans UK student has started a campaign aiming to combat anti-LGBT bullying and depression with chocolate.

The aim is to raise awareness of bullying, both transgender and LGBT, by making these diverse chocolates.

Workman is setting up her own chocolate company, but with all profits going to anti-bullying charities.
