The Attitude 101 categories are Film, TV, and Music; Politics; Travel; Sport; The Future, supported by Clifford Chance; Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics; Third Sector and the Community; Media and Broadcast; Fashion, Art, and Design, supported by Klarna; and Business, Financial, and Legal.

Projects for the year ahead include authoring a trend report on the future of LGBTQ travel and speaking on international panels about the need for “queer fluency” in the travel and hospitality industry.

Cliff Joannou, editor-in-chief of Attitude, says: “The LGBTQ+ community is broad and diverse, we are in every culture, nationality, ethnicity, class, religion. One thing that unites us is the process of coming out, both to ourselves and others, sometimes with ease and at other times with great difficulty.

“With the Attitude 101, empowered by Bentley, we celebrate those whose intersectional identities have helped them excel in their careers as openly LGBTQ+ scientists, lawyers, actors, musicians, politicians, engineers, designers and beyond in our annual list of LGBTQ+ trailblazers.”
