Being intentional with pronouns can help ensure your conversation is an inclusive space for LGBTQ+ 🏳️🌈
As a host, you can help by adding your pronouns to your on-screen name via your profile settings. For instance:
Jane Doe (she/her)
Joe Blogs (he/him)
Jamie Smith (they/them)
You can also let your guests know what your pronouns are when you are introducing yourself. If your guests see you do this, they may feel more comfortable sharing their own pronouns.
Normalising the use of pronouns helps support nonbinary, trans, queer, and gender non-conforming people by letting them know they’re in a space where their gender identity will be acknowledged and respected. It also helps us avoid a situation where we missgender others by making assumptions about their gender identity.
Huh? But what even are pronouns?
If we lost you with that first section please don’t worry! Pronouns are new to many people. If that’s you, we’re so glad you clicked on this article to learn more. Welcome!
We’d suggest popping over to visit mypronouns.org to learn more about all things pronouns and why they matter. Thank you for showing up for LGBTQ+ people and helping create a more inclusive world 🙂
