Becoming an LGBTQ+ ally is about much more than adding a rainbow to your logo once a year, and as more companies are becoming clued into what they can do to help support the LGBTQ+ community in the workplace, it’s becoming clearer how supporting the community can actually benefit firms.
In a study conducted by Jukka Sihovenen from Aalto University School of Business, and Sami Vahamaa, Veda Fatmy, and John Kihn from the University of Vaasa, it was revealed that firms with LGBTQ+ friendly polic...
Graduation at the University of Notre Dame’s Mendoza College of Business was a joyous event for MBA graduates. But when, two days later, a scathing open letter written by former leaders of the Notre Dame Mendoza LGBTQ and Allies Club appeared on LinkedIn, the business school community was shaken.
In the letter, Eric Sweeney and Teja Nellury outlined their experiences of discrimination at the university.* They had, they said, a responsibility to prospective MBAs to share just how uncomfortable...

Few of us have found ourselves jostling, pushing, dancing and singing together in the past year, but a sold out event aimed at supporting Britain’s independent music venues is a pretty good place to pick up where we left off.
You see Frank live, as you do one of his openers, the optimistic Beans on Toast. These are singers that are made their very best by an angry audience; a loud audience; an audience they can surf on. Everyone we speak to is emotional, excited, many nervous...several masked...
Despite a growing corporate awareness of LGBTQ+ issues and involvement in annual Pride celebrations, many LGBTQ+ people are unhappy in the workplace.
In a survey by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), 31% of LGBTQ+ workers in the United States said they feel unhappy or depressed at work and 46% of LGBTQ+ workers said they are closeted, meaning they do not disclose their sexuality or gender identity at work.
Since 2002, the HRC has published its Corporate Equality Index to rank businesses on how ...
With its maroon awning, trendy crowds, and rave reviews, as a fresh Tooting resident, it was hard to avoid the gravitational pull of this uber-cool foodie joint.
The staff look like they’ve stepped off an indie-cool Instagram page and eating is informal, dotted around bars, tables and lamps and Daddy Bao is more like the hip cousin, who introduces you to a never-before-heard band that becomes huge and shows you how to roll a spliff.
If every person in the UK used one single-use face mask to protect themselves from Covid each day for a year, that would create 66,000 tons of unrecyclable contaminated plastic waste, according to University College London. That’s 10 times the impact on climate change than using reusable masks.
It’s the unintended consequence of the mass use of personal protective equipment (PPE) caused by the health and safety response to Covid. NHS use of disposable masks alone is up 3057% year-on-year, and...
Beside the exit of Clapham Common tube station, tucked in between bars of cackling, tipsy middle class professionals and suited and booted estate agents, Carmen is a family joint. And a good one at that.

It’s nine fifteen and the kettle isn’t boiled yet. You’ve hit snooze six times. Intentions of an early morning run followed by a shower, a smoothie, and some meditation, have gone out of the window.
Sure, you could’ve risen earlier—when you had to make it to the subway on time, you did. But now all you want to do is roll from bed to desk with as little effort as p...
Proof that fairy lights cannot improve everything | Guildford Kitchen, 1st May 2021 Review — The Extra Clove
A tent on a cricket ground in your local town. The promise of locally sourced booze and independent food retailers. A spring evening lit with fairy lights glinting on bright smiles as the sunsets.
Idyllic, isn’t it?

‘No queer sex ed and homophobia goes unpunished’: This is what it’s like to grow up LGBT+ in UK boarding schools
Earlier this year, London private school headmaster Nicholas Hewitt proudly came out to his students, echoing the bravery of one of his students.
St Dunstan College is one of many wealthy private schools across the UK where a gesture like this could go a long way.
Sadly, however, the private sector is behind in its efforts to create a safe space for queer kids. So, what about boarding schools?
There are approximately 500 boarding schools scattered across the UK and Ireland and within those li...
