LGBTQ Voices @ MiQ: Sollie Davies

LGBTQ & Ally Voices of MiQ is an interview series that’s part of our Pride celebrations. In this blog, we’ll hear from MiQ people who are in different roles, in different countries, with different experiences. They’ll tell us about their story, how they’re celebrating Pride and what it means to them. This is just one of the ways we’re supporting the LGBTQ+ community and raising awareness. It reflects how far society has come, but how far we still need to go.

What’s your favorite Pride memory?
One of my favorite memories was Pride 2018 in London. The weather was incredible, and I set up camp in St James Park with my partner. We had lots of food and drink, and I even got to catch up with my mum who was there with her friends.

What do you find inspirational about Pride month?
Hearing stories from all around the world. I think it’s important to recognize that while we’ve made so much progress, there’s still so far to go. 

How will you be getting involved with and celebrating Pride this year?
We’ll be hosting a mixer here in the London office, and I’ll be attending events throughout the city. Outside of MiQ, I’ll be at the Pride parade with my partner and friends, enjoying some drinks in the sun. (I’m manifesting that warm weather now!)
