Janice and I and the FMW team celebrate Pride this month, with thoughts and appreciation for the brave and innovative LGBTQ+ folks who have paved the way before us!
I took the jump into this amazing industry eight years ago, but at the time I didn’t really know what the Fleet world was like. And as an out gay man who’d primarily been in the Tech industry for nearly two decades, I had a tiny bit of apprehension. But I am happy to say that apprehension was unnecessary – our industry has more wonderful, warm, inclusive people than I could ever have imagined.
All of that said, I know that I am lucky. My wish (and our wish) is that everyone will be respected for who they are, and allowed and encouraged to live their best, most authentic lives. So that we all may flourish.
