    An oddly cheery picture this, for a story about horrible regimes where being gay is illegal. And between that and the smiley you've got on the workplace happiness story, the site looks like a raver's forum. Aciiiiiiid!

  • The middle east

    The sad fact is that the LGBT issue is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the objectionable aspects of middle eastern countries that international law firms do business in.

    For most you could add the massive gap between the wealthy elite and the dirt poor populace; while for many you could also include the general racism, widespread abuse of domestic staff, widespread human rights abuses by the police, and a general oppression of women that hides behind an interpretation of Islam.

  • Under-representation of lesbian women

    I was at the event and I thank the A&Out organising team for making it a most enjoyable evening. There were indeed far more gay men there, and it is often the case that lesbian women are the minority at LGBT networking events.

    The numbers, though small, were encouraging. The atmosphere was lively and the crowd very friendly.I hope that more women will be emboldened to attend the next event.
