In light of the past story on Pink Ghettos in Canberra I was wondering if there were any Rainbow Ghettos in this city? That is places that are friendly to, and good employers for sexual orientation and gender diverse people?
I’ve had some friends leave a major government employer specifically because of their poor attitude towards gender diverse people (hint hint they did a review of the treatment of women, but ignored Trans people). Similarly there are some businesses that some of my gay and gender diverse friends would never work at because they have gained a reputation as being very hostile towards them.
So, are there employers in this city where being gay or gender diverse is welcomed? Where discrimination is the exception rather than the norm? Where one’s life style choices are not going to see them face a glass ceiling? Where a man wearing a dress isn’t going to be harassed? Where a woman with a girlfriend isn’t going to be grounds for gossip then eventual dismissal? Where being a lesbian isn’t going to see the males in the organisation or business harass her for not going out with them?
I’m asking about all the flavours of the rainbow too, not just gay, lesbian or bi. Trans and Intersex as well thanks.
