When you are a gay Paralympian, you have to triumph over more than adversity.
Not only do you have to overcome myths about gay people in sport, but your disability as well.
Out of 4,200 athletes competing in 503 medal events, only two so far have been open about their sexuality.
This means only 0.05% of athletes will be openly gay at the Paralympic Games.
Both British-born athletes, Lee Pearson and Claire Harvey are flying the flag for Team LGBT in the Paralympic Games.
