“LGBT+ campaigns always caught my attention, they show young teenagers that this is normal, it’s okay! When you see more people talking about diversity, more adults talking to kids about diversity and equality. If you go to a café and if there is a flag in a door, it becomes more friendly, breaks the ice(…) I would like a symbol, it could be quite discreet – that this employer welcomes and supports . . . [LGBT+].”
It is recommended that an LGBT+ solidarity campaign to be funded and established in the county. Such a campaign would allow allies of LGBT+ people to publicly show welcome to and solidarity with LGBT+ people. It would give employers, public bodies, places of education and communities an opportunity to engage in a practical, visible activity which would increase LGBT+ visibility, create opportunities for conversations, show visitors to the county a public welcome for LGBT+ people.
