During Pride Month—and every month—we believe that everyone has the right to move freely, safely, and without fear.

We’re dedicated to supporting our community in living an open and authentic life, loving whomever and however they want, and feeling empowered to speak their truth.

Meet Uber employees who Move with Pride

Bernardo (he/him)

Feeling that people value me for being exactly who I am gave me the strength that I need to go through the daily challenges of being a transgender person. Uber taught me that it’s only by knowing and listening to people with different experiences and backgrounds that it is possible to set the world in motion.

Litigation Counsel, São Paulo

Chantelle (she/her)

For me, Moving with Pride means giving everyone the chance at love that they deserve and ensuring that others see me standing up not only for my rights but also for others.

Director, Regional Head of Safety (EMEA), Amsterdam

Ways Uber supports the LGBTQIA+ community

Affirming transgender rights

  • We partnered with Right To Be and the National Center for Transgender Equality to sponsor the creation of a new transgender-specific bystander allyship workshop. Learn more about the Right To Be organization here.

  • Uber’s Gender Transition Guidelines help transitioning employees, their managers, teammates, and HR professionals have the knowledge and resources needed to help ensure a positive experience.

Standing up to discrimination

  • Our Community Guidelines explicitly prohibit discrimination, and everyone who uses the Uber app plays a part in helping to make each experience feel safe, respectful, and positive. We’ll continue to ensure that everyone using our platform understands what’s expected when using our apps and commits to the guidelines.
  • Users can report discrimination directly through the Help section in the Uber app or at Uber’s online Help Center (riders can visit this page; drivers, this page).
  • All customer support agents are given specialized training on bias and discrimination, with a focus on how to support transgender drivers and delivery people. This enhances our processes of handling potential discrimination incidents.

Strengthening our community partnerships

  • We’ve continued our ongoing commitments to providing free rides and meals to nearly 20 LGBTQIA+-related NGOs globally, including Albert Kennedy Trust, San Francisco AIDS Foundation, and TransAmsterdam.

  • We listen to, learn from, and engage with community members—and will continue to do so—to better support all people using our platform.

Umar (he/him)

Uber’s mission is to make movement happen at the tap of a button. This movement gets amplified when we are inclusive, and #MoveWithPride is exactly that—reducing barriers and giving a part of the community a chance to be well represented.

Director of Global Tax, Washington, DC

Maddie (she/her)

I have never felt the need to hide myself at work—everyone has been so welcoming, and no one assumes anyone else’s sexuality, which I really appreciate.

Pride comes in all colors

We’re proud to help shine a spotlight on the flags, sexual orientations, and gender identities that represent some of the colors across the LGBTQIA+ community. *

  • Agender

    An umbrella term encompassing many different genders of people who commonly don’t have a gender and/or have a gender that they describe as neutral.

  • Asexual

    The lack of a sexual attraction or desire for other people.

  • Bisexual

    A person emotionally, romantically, or sexually attracted to more than one sex, gender, or gender identity, though not necessarily simultaneously, in the same way, or to the same degree.

  • Gay

    A person who is emotionally, romantically, or sexually attracted to members of the same gender.

  • Gender-fluid

    According to the Oxford English Dictionary, this is a person who doesn’t identify with a single fixed gender; of or relates to a person having or expressing a fluid or unfixed gender identity.

  • Genderqueer

    Genderqueer people typically reject notions of static categories of gender and embrace a fluidity of gender identity and, often, though not always, sexual orientation. People who identify as genderqueer may see themselves as being both male and female, being neither male nor female, or falling completely outside these categories.

  • Intersex

    An umbrella term used to describe a wide range of natural bodily variations. In some cases, these traits are visible at birth, and in others, they are not apparent until puberty. Some chromosomal variations of this type may not be physically apparent at all.

  • Lesbian

    A woman who is emotionally, romantically, or sexually attracted to other women.

  • Non-binary

    An adjective describing a person who doesn’t identify exclusively as a man or a woman. Non-binary people may identify as being both a man and a woman, being somewhere in between, or falling completely outside these categories. While many also identify as transgender, not all non-binary people do.

  • Pansexual

    Describes someone who has the potential for emotional, romantic, or sexual attraction to people of any gender, though not necessarily simultaneously, in the same way, or to the same degree.

  • Polysexual

    A polysexual person is someone who is sexually and/or romantically attracted to multiple genders but not all genders.

  • Queer

    A term people often use to express fluid identities and orientations. Often used interchangeably with "LGBTQ."

  • Transgender

    An umbrella term for people whose gender identity and/or expression is different from cultural expectations based on the sex they were assigned at birth. Being transgender doesn’t imply any specific sexual orientation. Therefore, transgender people may identify as straight, gay, lesbian, bisexual, etc.
