ANDREAS GYLLING ÆBELØ. BUSINESS ADVISOR, DIVERSITY ADVOCATOR AND #ROCCAMOREREBEL
"Yes, you can call me Homo!" Andreas Gylling Æbelø says with a big smile. "To me, it's not a negative word. It's positive. A great word."
The experienced business advisor holds a Master's Degree in Rhetorics and Sociology and knows what words mean and what they can do. "I'd like to demystify what you can and cannot say to people. You can use any word you like, as long as you say it in a positive context."
Andreas is passionate about diversity and promotes an inclusive culture in articles and talks. "I am teaching people how to use words in a caring and positive way. It is about showing respect, ensuring everyone's in and feeling comfortable."
Andreas has not always been comfortable calling himself Homo. "But I started loving it once I got the courage to admit who I am. You shouldn't just accept who you are, you should love it and embrace it."
