On April 27, Hornet’s LGBT networking event Stung popped up in New York City.
The event helped raise awareness about UN-Globe. UN-Globe is dedicated to fighting for the equality and non-discrimination of LGBTI staff in the UN system and its peacekeeping operations. The staff group represents lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and inter-sex staff members of the UN system and its peacekeeping operations.
Tim Greene, General Manager of Hornet in New York City, told us: “We’re extremely proud to have hosted Stung, our premier monthly networking event, in support of UN-Globe, a UN employee group fighting for the equality of United Nations employees globally. The Stung event helps us achieve two critical goals of our mission – helping gay men connect and using our platform to help advocate for issues of importance to the LGBTQ community. We started in NYC, and now host the Stung event internationally to fully leverage the strength of our global platform.”
Like Greene said, Hornet’s mission to help gay men connect will continue throughout the world. Stung-like networking events are already popping up in cities such as Rio de Janeiro, Paris and Taiwan, bringing gay men together in real life.
