Lol no.

anyone can attend. In fact, I've heard that some places encourage everyone to go.

Anyone can attend. Diversity is not based on the color of one's skin (gasp!), although that might be why firms are there. They could just asume you are LGBT, but they can't really ask you straight up if you are.

ORMs, URMs, LGBTQ persons, the disabled, people who overcame great adversity, etc. etc. OP is golden. Like the lawlyer said, if you feel diverse, go.
