What Does Pride Month Mean To You?
Not only is Pride Month a time to celebrate diversity, acceptance and inclusivity, it is also a time to amplify LGBTQ+ voices, educate ourselves on LGBTQ+ history, and raise awareness of the societal issues that continue to face the LGBTQ+ community.
At One Beyond, we are proud to be an LGBTQ+ inclusive workplace, offering our full support to anyone who needs it and encouraging every one of our team to be the best possible version of themselves. After all, we’re all people before we’re employees.
With this in mind, and as Pride Month is a true celebration of diversity, we asked our team ‘What does Pride Month mean to you?’ Here are some of the responses:
“A fight for the visibility of a collective shut down over the past centuries.”
Fernando Machuca, Service Desk Operator
“Recognising the continued fight for equality for all my LGBTQ+ siblings.”
“Pride Month for me is where freedom becomes stronger than oppression.”
“To show respect to humanity with every choices, love.”
Elif Yilmaz, Software Developer
“For me, it’s an opportunity to learn!”
“Having the opportunity to openly and communally celebrate and support people who are still marginalised and discriminated against.”
“As a queer man, pride month is a chance to get some visibility for the community.”
