Overview

The LGBT+ community: yesterday marginalized, stigmatized, and criminalized, now champions of creativity, diversity and innovation in a highly competitive world. In addition, corporate social responsibility and ethical demands for inclusivity and purpose have become economic directives that every organization would like to attain.

For GaYme Changer, the first book of its kind, Jens Schadendorf has traced the LGBT+ community and an increasing number of their allies from across the globe to discover the start of a revolution.

Illustrated by fascinating stories around individuals, companies, nonprofits and a fast-growing cohort of other organizations, he not only describes the emergence of a strong ecosystem accelerating the rise of global LGBT+ equality. Supported by up-to-date research, he also shows specifically how investment in LGBT+ inclusion delivers a powerful return:

It is economically and ethically beneficial for companies, societies, and every human being, to let LGBT+ members develop into dynamic forces, rooted in new forms of cooperation, learning, and productive activism for ga(y)me changing results.

The struggle of recognition on corporate, state and global levels is not over yet, but in workplaces and markets, many gay, lesbian, transgender, bisexual and queer individuals have become champions of power – true GaYme Changers, not only working for the next level of LGBT+ equality, but also developing the global economy faster and for the better.
