Pride Month: Ensuring a Future of Hope and Togetherness

June is Pride Month

If we want a tomorrow filled with hope and togetherness, we need to ensure that today is not filled with hate. By combating hate against the LGBTQ community, we’re ensuring that our future is more inclusive, safer, and greater.

Today, much of the hate speech takes place on the internet including on social media platforms, chat apps, comments sections of websites, and on gaming platforms. Hate speech too often culminates in physical violence so tackling the scourge of hate on-line is often ripping it out at its roots.  And that’s exactly what we do.

L1ght’s learning algorithms analyze and recognize all forms of hate speech, whether through text, video, or sound. We don’t just say we’re against hate speech and its consequences –  we “walk the walk”.

L1ght’s technology is built to combat online hate speech. Our mission is to protect diversity, prevent bullying, and ensure the internet is a tolerant ecosystem for people of every gender, color, religion, and opinion.

As Askhari Johnson Hodari writes, “If everyone helps to hold up the sky, then one person does not become tired.”  L1ght is proud of its partners and allies in the fight against online toxicity. From governments and NGOs to social media channels, gaming platforms, hosting providers, and parents, this is a battle that can only be won when we work together.

At L1ght, we have so much to be proud of. There is still a long road that must be traveled, but there’s no doubt that we’re heading in the right direction – and we look forward to celebrating many more proud moments and pride months together in the years ahead.

Happy Pride.
