Pride month may be coming to an end, but the love and celebration doesn't stop here.
We don't want to be like other businesses that participate in "rainbow washing" marketing by slapping a rainbow on their page and calling it allyship. We want to show our love and support to our LGBTQ+ members and make a difference in our community. The pride flag is a beautiful symbol with a meaningful history and we want to preserve it.
In honor of pride month, we want to give to a cause that is on the frontlines making a difference. For the entirety of June, we will be donating 5% of our profits to The Trevor Project. The Trevor Project provides crisis intervention and suicide prevention service to LGBTQ youth.
