Happy Pride month, everyone!

We’re nearing towards the end of June and in celebration of Pride Month, we thought we’d share with everyone how we define “Pride” and what it means to us.

What does “Pride” mean to you?

We are all unique individuals, therefore, Pride is defined differently by each one of us.

For us, Pride is a celebration of diversity. It’s about reinforcing equality to all. It is a celebration of inclusivity and being able to express freely. It’s using that voice that we have in order to empower those whose still in the dark and whose voice isn’t heard as loudly.

Pride is to ensure that everyone, regardless of the sexual orientation, feels that they can celebrate who they are without fear. To feel safe and supported and knowing that there is a safe space for everyone. Pride is being able to feel confident without the need to “turn off” some parts of you.

Pride means living the life that you want and deserve without shame.
