WorkPride Panel: Politics, and How It Impacts the LGBTQ+ Community

Politics have a vital role in the lives of every single person around the globe, dictating what they can and cannot do, what opportunities are available to them and how they can climb up or redefine the social ladder. In many countries worldwide, being LGBTQ+ in any shape or form is still punishable by death or time spent in prison. 

In this panel we will explore some examples of how certain political actions can damage the health and wellbeing of the LGBTQ+ community, as well as how the community is not protected under certain legislation in comparison to their straight counterparts. As we understand this is a sensitive subject, we ought to put personal political stances aside and study the subject through a more objective, non-biased lens.
