We want to have a happy hour for this bowl on Wednesday - does anyone have a Zoom Pro or business account that is willing to share the love so we aren't capped at 40 min?! Want to see all of you!
LGBTQ+ in Advertising
What are your agency’s policies regarding COVID? BBDO is still having us come in. My specific team mandates us to “come in but don’t sit remotely close to anyone”. It’s a bit nonsensical/shocking...
Saw this photo series on IG for brands doing Pride campaigns - thoughts? Anything else that needs to be added? https://www.instagram.com/p/B9kXoi7Av-M/?igshid=y5svz2grqg3k
Do you have a favorite ad featuring the LGBTQ+ community? At one point my FireStick played the Vegas tourism ad with the 2 women getting married almost every other commercial, so that's my soft spot..
What percentage of the population is lgbtq these days? I feel like my life experiences are never viewed as overtly relevant to the audiences I work on and it bums me out.
I keep hearing "if you can see it, you can be it" in reference to female empowerment in the industry, so I want to apply it to this community too. Who's your LGBTQ+ advertising hero?

How may of you are out on your resume? And how did you go about it. Have had it be a blessing and a curse, so interested to hear.
What to do about working in an office with noninclusive bathrooms? I don't feel comfortable there and have been walking 10mins away to a coffee shop to do my business.
Cross posting here bc stereotypes lol I'm a backpack type of gal and was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for a good commuter/every day/laptop backpack? I'm looking at a Fjall Raven rn, lmk
Has anyone in this bowl attempted to organize an ongoing social event for the folks in this bowl? Feel like we need more less formal and ongoing ways to meet each other. And happy Thursday ya’ll!
Looking to join a running club for LGBTQ folk or other agency folk. Is that a thing? NYC by the way.
I'm seeing a lot of sign ups listing pronouns, which initially struck me as very cool, but now I'm wondering if I should just lie rather than out myself as non-binary and say my pronouns are they...
