FULL TITLE: BBC issues 'ally' badges to heterosexual staff who promote LGBT issues in a bid to tackle its 'heteronormative culture'
Staff at national broadcaster to wear pin badges to show they are 'LGBT allies'
BBC workers told to use the non-binary pronoun 'they' instead of 'he' or 'she'
Colleagues to EVEN change their email signatures to become more inclusive
Review wants to give LGBTQ+ colleagues promotions to create more role models
The BBC is encouraging staff to become straight allies of colleagues who are gay, lesbian or have other gender identities.
The move is an attempt to tackle what it calls a heteronormative culture, in which being straight is considered the norm.
To shift the balance, staff who are heterosexual but actively promote LGBT issues will wear pin badges or use email signatures to signify that they are allies of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender colleagues.
As it strives to become more inclusive, the broadcaster will also adopt the acronym LGBTQ+ to reflect how sexual orientation and gender identity blur beyond the L, G, B or T.
LGBTQ+ stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning, with the plus sign including other sexualities, such as gender fluid, while questioning represents those who are exploring their sexuality.
So-called non-binary pronouns for example, referring to someone as they instead of he or she will also be used by staff. Non-binary people who do not conform to male or female sexuality often prefer to be called they.
