It aims to achieve its core mission to end suicide within this community through crisis services, peer support, research, public education, and advocacy.

Why these charities are important to us

In the extremely conservative and conflicted city of Jerusalem, Jerusalem Open House is one of the only safe places for queer folk, its pride flag waving in the crazy city centre a source of comfort and courage. It's truly an isle of sanity and acceptance in a very complicated city. As a mentor in the youth group there, I met Palestinian kids coming in from the east (occupied) part of the city, kids from Jewish religious backgrounds, trans kids with complicated family dynamics. The Jerusalem Pride march is always a source of contention and sometimes extreme violence. It's truly a special and important place.

Maya Naveh

Sr. Technical/Programmer Writer, Sitecore

Mermaids is an important charity for me because of the fierce and damaging attacks on trans rights worldwide, and the dangerous rhetoric from public figures, press and politicians in the UK is creating a hostile environment for trans and gender-diverse young people. As LGB rights have improved throughout my lifetime, trans rights have not. It's time for the LGBTQIA+ community to prioritize the fight for rights, recognition, and freedom from discrimination for our transgender and gender-diverse siblings, in particular to support trans youth through this period in which they and their parents are attacked and vilified in the media and their identities debated, denied, and erased.

Lauren Bishop Vranch

Account Based Marketing Director, Sitecore

We are privileged to live in an accepting country of LGBTQIA+ individuals. Rainbow Road charity helps support those in desperate, and sometimes life-threatening need.

Michael Martell

Partner Communications Manager, Sitecore

ShoutOut focuses on combating homophobia in second-level education (ages 12 - 18) in Ireland. It was founded on the principle that second-level students can easily identify with volunteer facilitators who are primarily university students, just a couple of years out of school. I was one of these volunteers at a time when perception of queer people in Irish schools was changing rapidly — for the better. ShoutOut was and continues to be an important support for this positive change.

Conor O'Shea

Solutions Architect, Sitecore

I grew up in a family that was very loving regardless of sexual orientation/identification, but I know others are not as fortunate. The Trevor Project has always been an excellent support site for those at risk and need help.
