New LGBTQIA+ Platform Launches to Create a Global Resource for Inclusivity

As the LGBTQIA+ community prepares to commemorate National Coming Out Day on the 11 October 2019, an exciting new LGBTQIA+ resource has been launched to the public to foster global inclusivity.

Gayther is a platform tailored for the LGBTQIA+ community, featuring inclusive businesses, services and events, as well as country information, guides and community resources.

“Although there is a wide range of quality services and resources available to the LGBTQIA+ community, it all felt a little disjointed and requires a lot of research to find what you want,” says Peter Williams, founder of Gayther, “We wanted to create a space where people of all genders and sexual orientations could go to discover quality services, explore community content, support inclusive businesses, services and events and even make some friends!”

Many of the stories, articles and services on Gayther are tailored for members of the LGBTQIA+ community, but ultimately, it’s all about inclusion. The site can be used by everyone and anyone and will represent a truly global service, including 233 countries and 435 regional areas.

Gayther has been designed to be colourful (featuring the rainbow flag colours throughout) with positive, inclusive language and fun, interactive features. Users can browse extensive community-related information with relevant and up-to-date data such as guides to marriage and civil unions, a worldwide equality index, LGBTQIA+ dollar and population indexes for the various countries and regions. Gayther can also be used to find community groups and clubs locally, regionally or anywhere you travel! is not just about advocating for inclusive businesses, services and events but hopes to help the world to see and understand the diverse and amazing individuals that make up this exceptional community from every country, race and religion across the globe.

“As attitudes have changed over the past 50 years, more people have the freedom to be their true self without fear of persecution, and more people have come to know someone in their life that identifies as LGBTQIA+,” says Peter Williams, “Our aim is to help the world realise that our gender or sexual identifiers are not the only things that define who we are. Our hope in building Gayther was not only to help connect LGBTQIA+ individuals across the world but also to demystify and share inspiring stories from real individuals in the community.”

For advertisers, Gayther represents an opportunity for businesses, services and events to reach out to new audiences and be associated with a fun and interactive platform with a feel-good attitude.

As part of this quirky, positive approach, Gayther developed a mascot for the platform. Hapi the Hyena was chosen because, like many individuals within the LGBTQIA+ community, hyenas are also greatly misunderstood and misrepresented.

“We want to be a global resource now and long into the future,” says Peter Williams, “a go-to space where people can come regularly to find new information and connect in new ways. We will be continuously evolving to be as relevant and helpful as possible and welcome any and all feedback and ideas from the wider LGBTQIA+ community.”
