To coincide with the launch of the tool, Connector will highlight statistics on the level of online bullying and harassment experienced by members of the LGBT+ community.

Commenting in advance of tomorrow’s launch, Ivan Adriel, Connector’s Head of Digital, said: “Connector is a proud supporter of the LGBT community and, this Pride, we wanted to do something to help make the internet a better place for us all. So we created the tool we wished had existed when we were teenagers searching for our identity online.”
