At the TJHB launch events on Friday, we heard moving stories and messages from colleagues who are members of the LGBTQIA+ community.
Of course, we also enjoyed some delicious food and coffee, and provided Pride Fact Sheets to help inform our staff about all the activities happening in our city.
TJHB bus operators will transport thousands of locals and visitors to a host of events for 17 days – including the Pride Villages, the world-renowned Mardi Gras Parade and the Bondi Beach Party, to name just a few.
But amongst all the activities, colour and celebrations, there is a serious message. LGBTQIA+ youth are 12 times more likely to experience depression and 5 times more likely to attempt suicide. Celebrating significant occasions can help bring about social change.
Transdev John Holland Buses is a member of and are fundraising for ACON, a community organisation which strives to be a global leader in community health, inclusion and HIV responses for people of diverse sexualities and genders.
We are proud to be Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs ride to WorldPride.
