As the LGBTQ+ community celebrates National Coming Out Day today, Gayther is making its debut as an exciting new LGBTQ+ resource to foster global inclusivity.
A statement from the company describes Gayther as "a platform tailored for the LGBTQ+ community, featuring inclusive businesses, services and events, as well as country information, guides and community resources." The company's hope is to not only connect LGBTQ+ individuals across the world, but to help share inspiring stories from real individuals within the community.
"Although there is a wide range of quality services and resources available to the LGBTQ+ community, it all felt a little disjointed and requires a lot of research to find what you want," says Peter Williams, founder of Gayther. "We wanted to create a space where people of all genders and sexual orientations could go to discover quality services, explore community content, support inclusive businesses, services and events and even make some friends!"
Many of the stories, articles and services on Gayther are tailored for members of the LGBTQ+ community, but ultimately, it's all about inclusion. The site can be used by everyone and anyone and will represent a truly global service.
Users can browse extensive resources with up-to-date data, such as guides to marriage and civil unions, a worldwide equality index, plus LGBTQ+ dollar and population indexes for the various countries and regions. Gayther can also be used to find community groups locally, regionally or anywhere you travel.
"We want to be a global resource now and long into the future," says Williams, "a go-to space where people can come regularly to find new information and connect in new ways. We will be continuously evolving to be as relevant and helpful as possible and welcome any and all feedback and ideas from the wider LGBTQ+ community."
