Annabelle Jubin, 1er Prix de l'inclusivité
  • How did you get interested in this subject?

"I became interested in this topic because I and many of my relatives are part of the LGBTQ+ community and every year I see the reaction of this community to the efforts of companies that participate in Pride Month and then cease all public support for this cause, and I found it interesting to analyse the reaction of LGBTQ+ individuals to these targeted communications. "

  • What have you learned from this experience?

"Writing this dissertation has helped me to structure my thinking and it has also been an opportunity to look at previous consumer behaviour research specifically on the LGBTQ+ community. I also found that a lot of research only looks at heterosexual consumers' perceptions of advertisements that include LGBTQ+ people, so it was interesting to bring another perspective by interviewing the main people involved. I am very happy that I was able to dedicate my M2 year to study this topic that is close to my heart."
