What do we do now? We experiment! All the time. The pandemia changed the rules of the game. Now most parties tend to play poker - they either withdraw, bluff or go all in! It doesn’t matter if you don’t have anything or you have a full house - you have to play! And this situation is all about playing - you can try new things, explore new posibilities, enjoy new partnerships and seek new hights! This is what we do - put all cards on deck! Wanna play with us? Let’s have a talk!
More than half of young LGBTI people in the Lithuanian schools feel insecure about their sexual orientation and gender identity. Only 5% of them have never encountered homophobic, biphobic, or transphobic hate speech in their learning environment.
These are the findings of a study conducted a few years ago, but unfortunately the problem still exists. One of the reasons why the already vulnerable part of the LGBTI community, young self-seeking people, must withstand such pressure is the lack of #tolerance and positive information 💡
Our Berta& partner Lithuanian Centre for Human Rights is one of those who see this reality perfectly. Most of us have recently belonged to this age group focused in the study, some of us are already raising children, have LGBTI friends, relatives or have encountered a fierce homophobic opinion at least once - we all understand the importance of basic human support 💪
We work in communications, damn powerful communications. We bet our lives that the need not to turn a blind eye to topics like this, moreover, not to cause distortions of it is extremely significant, maybe even a life and death solution in order to take care not only of LGBTI youth, but also of ourselves ☝ A mature, broad-minded and enviably successful community ❤
#Indifference is a sign of weakness. Always. Sometimes we think that we are too small to make the difference. But it is not true. At night let mosquito in the room and see it for yourself. No one is too small.
To stand by your values, to support others, to spread the news are just a few things all of us can do to make the difference.
It is intolerable what is happening in #Belarus these days. People are fighting for their right to have a decent life. To have free elections with a true outcome. To have a better life. They are standing for their values. We cannot be indifferent to that. We can support and spread the message to the world.
No one is too small! 💫
