At TSA, we understand that the strength of our company lies in its people. This Pride Month, we’re excited to bring into focus TSA Pride, our vibrant employee-led group that champions the voices of LGBTQIA+ members and allies. When it comes to our culture, we have a strong ethos that everyone belongs. TSA Pride embodies this commitment by facilitating meaningful conversations, providing educational opportunities, and ensuring that every voice is not only heard but valued.

 

The importance of allyship and advocates

Bringing your all to work isn’t just about the efforts you put in but feeling safe to bring your whole self to the forefront. Here, we strive to create a workplace where everyone feels secure and empowered to be authentic without hesitation. TSA Pride amplifies the importance of allyship by supporting employees through key milestones such as name changes and promoting awareness of essential resources and support services like Minus18 and QLife. 
 
Through educating the broader TSA community about key LGBTQIA+ dates, the historical context of these events, and current issues impacting the LGBTQIA+ community, TSA Pride enables all employees to better understand and support their colleagues. By building a deeper understanding and acceptance of diverse identities, together with TSA Pride, we’re creating a more cohesive and supportive workplace for everyone.

Voices from TSA Pride

To truly understand the impact of TSA Pride, it’s best to hear directly from our team members. Here are some of their stories: 

“Growing up in a homophobic and transphobic household meant that I was unable to live authentically for far too many years of my adolescent and adult life. My hope is that, someday, nobody will have to experience this.
At TSA, I’ve found a place where I can be myself. Through their support and advocacy, TSA Pride has helped to build better understanding and acceptance among my colleagues. Many workplaces aren’t as diverse and accepting as TSA when it comes to LGBTQIA+ inclusiveness, but they should be.”
– Rei, Australia.

 

 

“With a teen daughter and many friends within the LGBTQIA+ community, I want to play my part as an ally. TSA Pride provides that space for me to learn, share, and gain a better understanding of the broader Pride community.
Everyone should have a voice and feel supported within the workplace without feeling unheard or discriminated against. TSA Pride brings that awareness and visibility, helping people become better allies and ensuring that everyone feels safe and supported.” – Tab, Australia. 

“One of the simple gestures that I really appreciate is the signs posted in the restrooms, reminding everyone to pay respect to those who feel comfortable in using their preferred rooms. It’s a simple way to show that everyone has a safe space here at TSA.” – Kaycee, The Philippines. 

“As a child of the 80s, from a town of only a couple of thousand in the coastal north of NSW, I’ve had a complicated relationship with my Pride. Spending my teenage years as “one of the queers”, while not even self-aware of my sexuality, at an all-boys boarding school, encouraged me to be anything but proud of who I was and to quiet myself and smother my personality. Joining TSA Pride in my 30s has been an instrumental part of my own personal growth and an immensely positive step in the development of my relationship with Pride. I could no longer work for a business that didn’t value inclusivity, representation, and visibility.” – Mitch, Australia.

There’s a place for everyone

We believe that understanding and acceptance are key to building a strong, cohesive team. TSA Pride supports us in educating our community about the importance of inclusivity, helping to create an environment where everyone can thrive. At TSA, we value the unique contributions of each team member and are committed to providing a safe and welcoming environment for all. Whether you’re a current employee or considering joining us, you can be confident that TSA values and supports your individuality.
