No matter how you identify, #AcceptanceMatters. For many in the LGBTQIA+ community, the name on their card doesn’t reflect their true identity. This WorldPride, we’ve announced an initiative allowing your chosen name to appear on the front of your card. #StartSomethingPriceless pic.twitter.com/5BmpquHoFu
