I am of the firm belief that Pride is never over. Any ideas for what we can all do to continue the conversation and keep pushing towards accurate representation and acceptance?

Lift up others from the LGBTQ+ who are lacking a privilege you might have. As a white lez in a big city I’m feeling pretty accepted. Not so much my BIPOC trans sisters. Especially if you are a white gay man. You need to share the wealth.

I switched to my current role with the verbal agreement that I would be third teir support - there will always be someone else between the customer and me. I recently found out that a new distributor doesn't want to stand up a support desk to do that for at least a year, leaving my team as first point of contact if anything goes wrong with a system.

Looking for an LGBTQ forum or conferences? Does anyone know any?

I use they/them pronouns and I’ll be starting a new job (remotely) in a month. How have you all gone about bringing up your pronouns in meetings, to HR etc ? Were your coworkers accepting?


Hey folks. Anyone know where us alphabet people hang out at Cannes?


Has anyone changed their pronouns at work before? How did it go?

Shooting an email to HR doesn't seem right 😅


Recently a high powered individual scolded me for killing a tone deaf pride idea, because I said, “As an lgbtq person, I feel ____.” Allegedly that phrasing wouldn’t allow others to feel like they could state their opinions on the idea. I was extremely upset but didn’t want to burn a bridge so I listened to their feedback and tried to let it go. But I haven’t really let it go - it was demoralizing and insulting...and quite frankly I’m angry I let them get away with it. What would you do?


Happy Gay New Year!!!



I’m sure it’s not new to 2022, but I’m feeling more than ever this year how much of “corporate pride” centers around gay men and calls it “lgbtq”. Are gay women, bisexuals, etc. not as palatable for audiences? I’m struggling with this a bit.


Looking to join a running club for LGBTQ folk or other agency folk. Is that a thing? NYC by the way.

Have you ever experienced discrimination or a setback/bad interaction in the workplace from your sexual identity being known? Our industry seems to embrace it, but every workplace is different.

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...


What do your agencies or clients have planned for Pride? We are working on some fun community activities, educational sessions, and a social campaign. Pride is NOT cancelled!!!


Great that they’re hiring 🏳️‍🌈 but also kinda weird to put it right in the job title, in a city that’s in a different country.
