Our visual representation philosophy

Diversity represented by abstract visuals.

The Role of Abstract Visuals in LGBTQ Representation TwelveTrains

Why use abstract visuals?

At TwelveTrains, we’ve chosen abstract visuals to celebrate the diversity of our queer and LGBTQ+ communities. This approach stems from our commitment to inclusivity, recognising that the vast spectrum of identities within our community cannot be fully captured through conventional imagery.

Using abstract visuals allows us to embrace diversity without limitations, offering a canvas that reflects varied experiences and identities. We hope this ensures that no one feels excluded, fostering an environment of acceptance and understanding.

We use AI to generate the visuals on our website.

Explore and connect

Each of the visuals represents a symbolic connection to the stories of our customers, which we help to place at the heart of their websites. We are committed to inclusivity and invite you to join us in acknowledging the beauty and diversity of our queer and LGBTQ+ communities.

Storytelling as a Tool for LGBTQ+ Advocacy and Community Building

We believe in building a more inclusive world for our multicultural and diverse queer and LGBTQ+ communities.
