Stories of Pride

After the year that was 2020, we recognise this year’s Pride event may be the most important of all.

Pride has always been about holding space for all people to be seen and to be heard. In recognition of Pride 2021, we are amplifying voices from our LGBTQIA+ community; sharing stories on being Proud & Present.

When we are Proud, we embrace authenticity and we stand up for each other so that everyone is celebrated, seen and heard. When we are Present, we do the self-work so that our awareness and experiences are expanded beyond our own.

Tune in below to listen to leaders in our LGBTQIA+ community;
