International LGBTQIA+ Pride Day, celebrated on June 28, is a relevant date, on which we must debate for a more inclusive and conscious world.
The date also says about the importance of combating prejudice against the LGBTQIA+ population and all who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transgender, transvestite, queer, questioning, curious, intersex, asexual, pansexual, polysexual, family and friends. , two-spirits, kink and other sexual orientations and gender identities.
Our flags and symbols of the movement must always be remembered, not just on the 28th of June; we must guide the media and politics, especially in this government that we are living in Brazil, which is homophobic, lesbophobic, transphobic, racist, sexist and fascist.
It is necessary to face this confrontation and promote debate for the promotion of respect and empowerment of individuals who are still marginalized and vulnerable, whether due to prejudice, stigma or discrimination. The acronym refers to the inclusion of other sexual orientations, gender identities and expressions, which should always be on our agendas as a counterpoint to this government.
We understand that to defend the rights, citizenship and dignity of all, information about the LGBTQIA+ population is needed, so that we can continue with the rights guaranteed through many political clashes. We have an ethical commitment to denounce discrimination that excludes and persecutes, as well as LGBTphobic violence and incitement to hatred.
Our fight is for rights such as health, stable union, marriage, family and adoption, labor market, sex and gender readjustment, social name to all citizens, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity. It is also to enable public policies similar to bodies, with all their plurality of subjects involved in the demands, leaving a hierarchical colonialism of human rights in the world.
Therefore, we are talking about the daily struggle in search of the humanization of interpersonal relationships and in the work environment. And within organizations, in the current political context, as well as in the banking category, it is still a challenge.
It is necessary to understand the difference between diversity and inclusion, since diversity is linked to the percentage of different people working in the company, such as, for example, black people, women, LGBT’s, PCD’s, among others, and inclusion it is the practice of promoting and treating all groups involved equally, aiming at the right to the same opportunities for development and growth.
It is a debate that must be present at the meeting tables and political negotiations of any organization that seeks a starting point to promote change and diversity in society and in the work environment.
Greetings to those who fought for this International LGBTQIA+ Pride Day.
Make no mistake, we still have many clashes ahead.
