Spreading Rainbow colours beyond its workplace, Future Generali India Insurance celebrates Pride Month with creative zeal

Mumbai, June 27, 2024: Reinforcing its stance as a strong ally to the LGBTQIA+ community, Future Generali
India Insurance Company Limited (FGII), has taken the PRIDE celebrations a notch higher this year by throwing
the doors open to all allies of the community. The company, which has been organising PRIDE celebrations
across its offices in India for the past two years, has moved beyond its workplace and has tied up with the
renowned theatre group Tamaasha for the exclusive screening of “Be-loved” – a play on and by the people from
the community.
In line with its strategic vision of embedding DEI (Diversity, Equity and Inclusion) into its culture, not only as an
inclusive insurer and employer but also as an inclusive corporate citizen, FGII has partnered with Humsafar Trust
for providing education and skill-building support to LGBTQIA+ individuals in Mumbai, Maharashtra. It has
handed over a cheque of Rs 17 lakh to Humsafar Trust to provide support with English-speaking courses, training
in computers etc for individuals from within the community to enhance their employability.
Since the last two years, FGII has been celebrating PRIDE month in support to the community with a series of
events, workshops and PRIDE parade at its offices across India. This has helped FGII in sensitising employees
and generate awareness regarding LGBTQIA+ issues with a view towards normalising the conversation at the
workplace and providing a conducive environment for colleagues from the community.
Screened at the Royal Opera House in Mumbai, the production – “Be-Loved,” explored queer love and
companionship through theatre, music, poetry, and movement and delved into desi stories of love, connection,
and family, showcasing the rich cultural contributions of the LGBTQIA+ community. Some of the noteworthy
guests who attended the event included Shreegauri Sawant, a transgender activist; Trinetra Haldar, actor and
Karnataka’s first transgender doctor and Bani J, Indian VJ and actress, among others.
Speaking about the pride event, Anup Rau, MD & CEO, Future Generali India Insurance Company Ltd., said,
“This year, by taking pride beyond our offices, we aimed to reach a larger audience for education and
sensitization. We think it’s great to showcase performances and queer stories, enacted by queer individuals,
with most of the crew from the community. It’s a celebration more than anything else! The response to the
show has been phenomenal and we will continue with our efforts to drive acceptance and belonging for the
