Rene is very proud to be a Champion of Pride 365 Certified because they want to contribute to positive changes for the LGBTQ+ community and they believe that only businesses with unspoiled reputations which are not involved in supporting state-sponsored homophobia, including in third countries, are worthy of receiving benefits from the LGBTQ+ community.
