PDA LGBT+ Network launch pronoun badges and flyers

The PDA LGBT+ Network are delighted to announce that pronoun badges and an accompanying flyer are now available to order. Thank you to all Network Members who contributed to the design of the badges and the flyer.

Wed 11th August 2021 The PDA

Wearing a pronoun badge is a simple but effective way of signalling that you respect people’s pronouns and their gender identity. This can mean a lot for colleagues and patients who may feel invisible, or who may be struggling with their gender identity within the pharmacy context. Pronoun badges can also help to open up conversations about gender identity and raise awareness of gender diversity.

There are 5 different styles of badges available to order:

  • He/him/his
  • She/her/hers
  • They/them/theirs
  • She/they
  • He/they

You may order one or more badges for yourself, or you might like to order a range of badges for colleagues to use at your workplace or university.

Hard copy flyers that explain the pronoun badges may be ordered for use on noticeboards, in staff/common room areas, and to give to colleagues by hand. An electronic version is also available to be emailed around and shared on social media. The badges and flyers are FREE and are available to order here.



Get involved

  • Take a selfie with your pronoun badge and share on social media using #PDAlgbt and tag the PDA on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn.
