Until now we have used the acronym LGBTI (Lesbian,Gay,Bisexual,Transgender and Intersex) but we feel that a more colourful umbrella is needed for these changing times.
From 2021, Workplace Pride is going to use LGBTIQ+ as our primary acronym.
By adding the “Q+” to our current acronym of LGBTI, we are embracing those generations who not only proudly identify as Queer but those who may still feel a stigma attached to the term. For the “+” part, we feel this includes those who identify outside the more mainstream labels on gender and sexuality. Also, very importantly the “+” includes all allies!
To celebrate this shift in thinking at Workplace Pride we will launch a new webinar series for 2021 featuring speakers from the LGBTIQ+ community.
The first of these webinars isn’t to be missed and will be for members and the general public on the 27th of January 2021!
