Workplace Pride has decided to expand our descriptive acronym from LGBTI to LGBTIQ+
Are acronyms a necessary evil? Will they keep expanding?
For Workplace Pride, the “Q” in Queer has many facets which play out differently across generations. How can we get those who feel the historical stigma around the term to change their minds?
For those who are comfortable with the term, what is the core meaning for them?
Can our community come together via the modern positive nuance of “Queer”?
For the plus “+” part of the expansion, we feel it includes the other parts of the gender/sexuality spectrum. How do we make allies stronger allies whilst incorporating them via the “+”?
