SUPPORTING SAFE SPACES BEYOND PRIDE WITH THE SAFE SPACE ALLIANCE

Having a safe environment where you can feel fully comfortable to be who you are is so important for LGBTQ+ communities – and not just during Pride Month, but ALL year round. So, we’ve committed to a two-year partnership with the Safe Space Alliance, a charity connecting people in the communities with verified LGBTQ+ allied venues around the world. Scroll to see what our partnership and £40k donation will be supporting👇

WHAT IS THE SAFE SPACE ALLIANCE?
The Safe Space Alliance partners with more than 300 global LGBTQ+ organisations to identify and verify safe spaces (both digital and physical) around the world. Additionally, it helps advise individuals, businesses and organisations on creating a safe working environment for LGBTQ+ people; responds to global crisis situations; and conducts research into better understanding the challenges faced by LGBTQ+ communities.

WHY ARE SAFE SPACES IMPORTANT?
Many LGBTQ+ people don't feel comfortable being fully themselves in front of other people for fear of violence, bullying or hate speech. Safe spaces are supportive environments where they can feel more confident to express themselves and be whoever they want.

WHAT DOES THE PARTNERSHIP WITH ASOS MEAN?
The two-year partnership and £40k donation are all about supporting the sustainable growth of the organisation. This means helping raise awareness about the Safe Space Alliance, expanding its directory of safe spaces across as many locations as possible, and strengthening the safety interventions and support it offers members. Ultimately, the Safe Space Alliance (and ASOS) wants everyone from LGBTQ+ communities to have a space where they can be fully themselves.

HOW CAN YOU GET INVOLVED?
You can visit the Safe Space Alliance directory to find a safe space near you 🏳️‍🌈 🏳️‍⚧️ And if you’re a business or organisation who wants your space/s (physical or digital) added to the directory for free, click here.

Plus, keep your eyes peeled for our new, year-round monthly YouTube series ‘Out & Out’, created in partnership with the Safe Space Alliance. We’ll be chatting to LGBTQ+ icons about what safe spaces mean to them – as well as how they express themselves through ✨STYLE✨ The first ep's out on 28 June – don't miss it!
