We are proud to stand together with the LGBTQ+ community.
Everyone regardless of gender and sexual orientation deserves to be treated with respect and have access to the same civil rights, healthcare, education, celebration of union, jobs, and security. We seek and admire diversity and have zero tolerance for any form of discrimination based on gender affiliation or sexual orientation. We will always support our LQBTQ+ community in their fight for equal rights and acceptance and constantly educate ourselves.
Amplify, Support & Learn
This is how we educate ourselves on how we can best amplify and support the LGBTQ+ communities and people. Educating ourselves and reading deeper into their history and their struggles to be accepted.
Understanding the barriers they have and are still facing in society will allow us to better advocate for them in our industry and daily lives. It will also allow us to celebrate their success, existence, and contribution to our society and industry.
