“Since the onset of Yubo, we’ve believed in being a platform where there is a space for everyone.” said Sacha Lazimi, CEO and Co–Founder of Yubo. “It’s important that younger generations feel seen, accepted, and have methods of expressing themselves, especially in online and digital environments. This is an important step in ensuring that our entire community feel accepted and included when making new friends on the app, providing our LGBTQIA+ users with a variety of genders, so they are able to represent themselves authentically.” 

Matt Moore, Corporate Fundraising Manager at LGBTQIA+ focused NGO, Mermaids, saidIt’s extremely important that organisations are taking steps to make their platforms a more inclusive place for transgender, non-binary and gender-diverse young people. We are glad to see that Yubo is working to make the app a space where Gen Z members of the LGBTQIA+ community can express themselves, without fear of judgement.”  

Throughout Pride Month, Yubo will feature several international in-app conversations and panels discussing key issues and topics that are top of mind for LGBTQIA+ youth.
