Celebrating Pride Month with The Lalit Suri Hospitality Group: A Commitment to Inclusivity and Safe Spaces

The Importance of Inclusivity in the Hospitality Industry

In the hospitality industry, being inclusive is not just about compliance with laws and policies—it’s about creating a welcoming environment where every guest feels valued and respected. For the LGBTQ+ community, this means acknowledging their unique experiences and challenges and providing spaces where they can express themselves freely and safely. Inclusive hospitality practices can significantly enhance the guest experience, fostering loyalty and trust.

Creating safe spaces is essential in the hospitality industry. It involves training staff to understand and respect diverse identities, offering amenities and services that cater to all guests, and ensuring that marketing materials reflect inclusivity. By doing so, we can create environments where everyone feels welcome and accepted.

Pride Month with Lalit Suri Hospitality

The Lalit Suri Hospitality Group: Leading by Example

At The Lalit Suri Hospitality Group, our commitment to the LGBTQ+ community is evident through our continuous efforts to promote inclusivity and celebrate diversity. This Pride Month, we are proud to highlight some of the ways we contribute to this cause:

Drag Brunch Extravaganza

Guests had the opportunity to witness drag queens Vinoth Raj (Beyonce the Dragqueen) and Legendary Karma in their element while enjoying the fiercest brunch imaginable. Our Drag Brunch at KittyKo, The LaLiT Ashok Bangalore, was more than just a meal—it was a full-blown celebration of fabulousness. Attendees engaged with the drag artists, gaining insights into vibrant drag and queer cultures while enjoying an exceptional menu, thrilling games, and more.

Kitty Su

Kitty Su, our iconic nightclub at The LaLiT Mumbai, has long been a beacon of inclusivity. With its luxurious ambience and welcoming aura, Kitty Su blended the high-end side of Mumbai with a spirit of acceptance and joy. This Pride Month, ‘The Asia Takeover- A Pride Month Special’ event featured an incredible lineup of artists, offering guests an unforgettable experience. Attendees enjoyed our famous red wine with spiced chicken pizza and immersed themselves in an atmosphere where diversity was celebrated with open arms.

Support and Empowerment

The Lalit Suri Hospitality Group is not only about celebrations; we are dedicated to the continuous support and empowerment of the LGBTQ+ community. This includes offering training programs for our staff to ensure they are knowledgeable and sensitive to the needs of LGBTQ+ guests. Our policies are designed to protect and uplift our LGBTQ+ employees, providing them with a safe and supportive working environment.

Creating Awareness

Through various initiatives, we aim to raise awareness about the challenges faced by the LGBTQ+ community. This involves hosting events, collaborating with LGBTQ+ organisations, and using our platforms to amplify the community's voices. By doing so, we hope to inspire others in the industry to adopt inclusive practices and create more safe spaces.
