FIA Global Survey on Discrimination and Harassment Against LGBTQ+ Performers

Established in 2011, the FIA Rainbow group – former FIA LGBTQ+ working group – aims to raise awareness of and combat the discrimination faced by LGBTQ+ performers in order to ensure a more inclusive and equitable working environment for all performers, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity. The very first endeavour of this group was the undertaking of a survey on Discrimination and Harassment against LGBTQ+ performers. After several years working on this project, the FIA Rainbow group is delighted to announce the publication of the results of this global survey. The findings of this survey, compiling responses from over 10,000 individual performers across 18 FIA members unions, offer valuable insights into the current state of discrimination and harassment in the workplace for those who identify as LGBTQ+. Despite initial data suggesting that most LGBTQ+ performers feel comfortable enough to be ‘out’ at work, the prevalence of harassment and discrimination indicates that there is still a significant amount of work to be done in our industry to foster a supportive and inclusive work environment.
