Who we are:
MA Pride is chaired by Suzannah Allkins, editor, of the British Journal of Midwifery and African Journal of Midwifery and Women’s Health, and is made up of members from across all departments of Mark Allen. Anyone passionate about improving the lives of LGBT+ people at work are welcome to join.
What does LGBT+ stand for?
The abbreviation LGBT+, (sometimes LGBTQ, LGBT or LGBTQIA) encompasses several terms that refer to anyone who is non-heterosexual or non-cisgender. MA Pride is working on its own glossary of terms to help everyone learn more about them.
