June is Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Awareness Month. EQUAL!, one of Alcatel-Lucent’s seven employee business partners, is planning activities to celebrate the contributions of the LGBT communities and raise awareness of the issues faced both within and outside the workplace that impact the lives of employees, friends or family members who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender. Events during the month will include live events and webcast presentations. All employees are invited to attend.
Today is the first live event for 2010: Transgender Issues in the Workplace
Milo Primeaux is an FTM (female-to-male transgender) person and serves as a board member and treasurer of TransOhio. He speaks on transgender topics and participates in the annual TransOhio Transgender and Ally Symposium. Milo is a graduate of the United Way’s Pride Leadership Cycle 2 and previously founded and directed a transgender student organization on the country’s longest-running all-women’s college campus.

In addition to live events, each weekday throughout the month, EQUAL! will also highlight a LGBTAM Icon on the EQUAL! blog site. These will be icons you may already know based on their work in the public eye, or with whom you work on a daily basis, or are new to you. Hope you take the opportunity to read their biography each day: http://equal.org
