LGBTQ+ Pride Public Workspace 🏳️‍🌈

:rainbow_flag: Each June, LGBTQ+ Pride Month is celebrated in around the world :rainbow_flag:

@meenakshi.dhanani and I have put together an LGTBQ+ Pride public workspace for dedicated LGBTQ+ resources. We’ve included collections for finding STEM opportunities, locating safe bathrooms, and understanding state-level legislation on LGBTQ+ issues.

These APIs and this workspace are very US-focused. We’re still looking for LGBTQ+ resources in other countries. Do you know of any?

Meaningful contributions will receive special Postman pride stickers :rainbow:

We wrote a blog post about it, too.

This workspace isn’t just for LGBTQ+ people. It also suggests ways that the API community can show up and support LGBTQ+ communities as allies. For example, installing the Safe Space Assist Slack bot will help your coworkers find bathrooms that are safe for LGBTQ+ individuals. Not all of your coworkers may be out yet. This is proactively inclusive. :hugs:

Cheers to the fellow LGBTQ+ folks in the Postman Community. Wherever you are in your journey, I’m glad you’re here today :clinking_glasses: :rainbow:

In case you feel you aren’t as aware or informed about the subject or may not have enough resources, don’t worry. Building this workspace with @hannah.neil has exposed me to a lot of information on the subject, and I’m glad I took it up. Building or creating content, resources can also be a way to learn about the subject. You needn’t be an expert to contribute. I’m glad I signed up for this :slight_smile:
