It’s International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia today, and that’s an issue I can proudly support as an individual. Big businesses are often a little shy around issues like that — and it’s a pity — so I’ve got to applaud Telstra’s particularly public stand.
In a blog post on the Telstra Exchange site, Paul Geason doesn’t mince words, given the piece is titled We will stand up against homophobia. Always.
In a way, that’s all that needs to be said.
I’d love to think it would become a non-issue, and indeed not newsworthy that a large company was willing to take a position of this kind, but I know there’s still some distance to go before that’s a reality.
