Attitude 101 empowered by Bentley: Meet the LGBTQ trailblazers changing the world today

We're shining a rainbow-coloured spotlight on the community in the Attitude 101 issue, out now.

2021-12-03

Back for a second time, the Attitude 101 issue is here to shine a light on the work of 100 LGBTQ trailblazers across ten categories and one person of the year making a difference. This year we're proud to be empowered by Bentley

Each category within Attitude 101 consists of 10 individuals who aren't ranked in any way; instead, we're highlighting the collective power of our community's individual achievements. You can check out the Attitude 101 issue - out now to download and to order globally for more info on this year's luminaries.

The categories are Sport; Politics; The Future, supported by Clifford Chance; Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics; Media and Broadcast; Travel; Film, TV, and Music, supported by Taimi; Business, Financial and Legal; Third Sector and the Community; and Fashion, Art and Design, supported by Klarna
