Happy LGBTQ+ History Month from The Speakers Agency
After LGBTQ+ data was surveyed in the census of 2021 for the first time in history, it is incredible to discover that over 1.3 million people in England and Wales identify as lesbian, gay or bisexual. Furthermore, approximately 262,000 people said their gender identity and sex registered at birth were different.
As such, the importance of LGBTQ+ History Month cannot be understated, and it is periods such as this that play a crucial role in increasing the visibility of the LGBTQ+ community and striving to make society a safer space for all.
The Speakers Agency is proud to work with such a wonderful collection of speakers who identify as LGBTQ+ and are well-versed in promoting LGBTQ+ welfare and helping to raise awareness of matters that affect their communities.
With annual Pride celebrations due to take place in June, why not get ahead of schedule and contact us to secure an LGBTQ+ speaker to educate and inspire your workforce today?
