I am so super excited for June because it’s LGBTQ+ Pride Month and I am so excited to spread love and educate the world about the LGBTQ Community. So if you think Pride is just rainbows and parades, get ready to learn a thing or two because I have a month full of amazing content planned!
What is Pride
Nowadays Pride is a celebration of the LGBTQ+ Community filled with Parades and Rainbows, but it hasn’t always been such a joyous occasion. Here is a snippet from, The History of LGBT Pride, from 1970 to Now that talks about the origins of Pride and the discrimination that people in the LGBTQ+ community have faced and continue to face.
“…as Pride grows and becomes celebrated world wide, it is important to remember its origin. Stonewall was a turning point in LGBT history because of the activism that it inspired, but it still serves as a reminder of the discrimination, violence, and brutality that LGBT people faced less than 50 years ago. ” – The Human Rights Campaign Staff, published on June 27, 2014
I highly suggest reading this article in it’s entirety and and doing all you can to learn about Pride and support the LGBTQ+ Community
Let’s celebrate the LGBTQ+ people in our lives!
Although I can’t change the lives of every LGBTQ+ person on this planet I CAN change the lives of a few! So in honor of Pride, I am gifting (2) LGBTQ+ Couples with a Custom Designed Stationery Suite and (2) LGBTQ+ Biz owners with One-on-One Coaching Services!
