#JUSTBEYOU

FinTrU's LGBTQ+ 'TrU Colours' is active across all FinTrU offices. The committee hosts and organises LGBTQ+ events and initiatives throughout the year including FinTrU’s participation in Pride, Lunch & Learn sessions, information evenings and Pride Breakfasts to name a few. FinTrU has marched in Belfast Pride since 2017, with record numbers attending each year. In 2019 FinTrU will march in Foyle Pride in Derry/Londonderry for the first time.

 

FinTrU is also part of the Stonewall Diversity Champions network, which helps ensure businesses are equality focused. The network’s goal is to ensure that all LGBTQ+ staff feel valued and to promote acceptance without exception.

PRIDE 2019

On Friday 2 August 2019 FinTrU’s LGBTQ+ committee, TrU Colours, held a Lunch & Learn on 'The Origins of Pride' with special guest local drag performer,

Gemini Golita.

 

​The Lunch & Learn focused on the origins of Pride highlighting LGBTQ+ history, where Pride came from, the impact of the Stonewall Riots as well as local LGBTQ+ history and statistics such as: 

  • In Northern Ireland 1 out of every 4 LGBTQ+ people have attempted to commit suicide.

  • Same Sex Marriage is still illegal in Northern Ireland.

  • Transgender people in Northern Ireland have a substantially higher waiting time and process to endure than those on mainland UK.

PRIDE – Simply part of CSR or something bigger?
