This week I was honoured to join and support my colleagues as an ally of the LGBTIQ community to march in Mardis Gras Sydney where Salesforce for the first time showed up for our “Outforce” community.

Growing up I identified strongly with this colourful community. As artists and theatre nerds we embraced everyone and celebrated their authentic selves. Watching my friends grow up and come into middle age issues like marriage equality and non-traditional families became challenging due to assumptions in our systems which made life unnecessarily complex and invited conflict and stress.

Which is why Im so pleased to see the progress that has been made and to continue to support my wonderful friends.
