The Equality Network has been set up to educate wedding professionals about how to work effectively with couples from the LGBTI community.
It’s our belief that The Equality Network will be of benefit to both our LGBTI family, as well as wedding professionals like you, who will provide products and services to them, as they embark on the journey of getting married.
The Masterclasses are thought-provoking and challenging. We expect that, by attending, you’ll extend your current understandings of LGBTI people and their wedding needs.
You’ll gain an insight into LGBTI history, culture, statistics and appropriate language. Also included is a look at emerging models of weddings that question the relevance of traditional hetero-normative weddings to LGBTI couples. And you’ll get to engage in discussions about ways in which you, as a wedding professional, can demonstrate your support for marriage equality, far beyond putting a rainbow on your website.
Our Masterclasses are taught by a member of the LGBTI community, who also has a background in the wedding industry. It’s essential for us to have instructors who can answer your questions with a huge depth of knowledge and experience of LGBTI culture and history. Your instructor Bronte is a cis-gender, gay man who loves to delve deep into LGBTI culture and history. Don’t know what cis-gender means? Maybe you should attend!
