Davos Lights Up in a Rainbow for the Global LGBTQ Community

The World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland took place last week, and LGBTQ visibility was high. On January 18, heads of state, CEOs, and civic and social leaders from around the globe were greeted with “Pride on the Promenade,” a united show of support for LGBTQ people through a rainbow light-up of multiple venues and signs across the Promenade, Davos’ main street of shops and cafes in Davos. The initiative, organized by GLAAD, the Partnership for Global LGBTQI Equality (PGLE), and Accenture, celebrated the progress of LGBTQ human rights and served as a call to action to advance global LGBTQ acceptance and equality. PGLE is a project of BSR, the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, and the World Economic Forum.

During a reception hosted by Accenture, GLAAD President and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis told the packed room: “LGBTQ people know that visibility matters. Our visibility has led to legal equality and social acceptance. The world leaders and business leaders here in Davos tonight see that the world’s largest and most influential companies here are proud allies. Let that send a message to the countries and companies who are not posting rainbows tonight. But tonight’s rainbows must continue with action year-round. While the rainbows come down on the Promenade, the action from corporates cannot.” Click here for more information about this historic night.
