Unicorns Invade Berlin

Business
The Unicorns in Tech hosted #unit conference the first queer tech conference in Berlin. I had a chance to sit down with the organizer, Stuart Cameron, before the event. I asked him why he launched Unicorns in Tech and the Sticks & Stones LGBT Career Fair. "A few years ago, we had a booth at Web Week promoting Sticks & Stones.  And while the event was quite busy, we weren't getting many people to approach the booth.  Everyone was polite, but distant.  I realized though professional, business folks were far from accepting. I wanted to change that.  I wanted businesses to understand the value of diversity." Unicorns Invade Berlin The #Unit conference was housed in the Fritzclub im Postbahnof a cavernous warehouse space in an old Berlin train station. As you approach it's…

We had a chance to sit down with Marco Fuß of GLEICH & GLEICH - Exklusive Hochzeiten und Gay Weddings. Berlin's Gay Wedding Planner   Why did you start a gay wedding planner business? When I married my partner 3 years ago, I felt like "normal" wedding planners just didn't get it. We grow up with the ideas of what a wedding should be but ours is different. It is two men and as a result, the wedding has to be different. And there are challenges.  You have to bring a diverse group together. This might be the first time the family has been exposed to the gay friends.  You want everyone to feel comfortable and have a great time. This is our specialty, finding a way to engage all…
