Audeliss LGBT London Pride Week 2016

 

Our diversity-championing team have always been proud to support Pride since our inception and this year we are wearing our rainbow wings: our logo has been specifically enhanced to reflect the LGBT+ flag to celebrate Pride Week.

The still-raw devastation wrought by the Orlando shootings last week is a poignant reminder of the importance of Pride and its meaning for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people around the world. Embracing diversity and uniting against homophobia and transphobia are even more vital in the wake of Orlando and recent set-backs in the struggle for equality worldwide, including research from London Pride revealing that 74% of LGBT people feel the need to hide their sexual orientation and the uncertainty of what Brexit will mean for the UK’s diverse workforce.

However, the LGBT community and straight allies still have many reasons to celebrate. This week marks the one-year anniversary of the legalisation of same-sex marriage in America and organisations across the globe are strengthening their efforts in the battle against prejudice and discrimination, with small businesses in New York working to become more inclusive of diverse employees and trade unions actively fighting homophobia.

Every single step of progress including small victories for trans students proves that when we work together to celebrate diversity and champion our differences, we make the world a better place for everyone.

Enjoy your weekend and have a very Happy Pride!
