PRIDE IS MORE THAN A MONTH

 

In regards to Pride, here is what we believe:


We believe in tolerance, acceptance and understanding. We believe in equality and inclusion. We believe that there are a million different ways to be beautiful, amazing, rad and righteous.


We believe that in a world so readily torn apart, we have more in common than that which divides us, and that simple fact is worth celebrating. Moreover, we believe everyone is entitled to celebrate who they are with equal freedom, dignity and respect.
 
To be absolutely clear, when it comes to the rights of the LGBTQIA+ community, we are not neutral, and we are not indifferent. We believe in Pride. Today and every day.

 

We also believe in support and empowerment. That is why we’ve partnered with The Trevor Project. The Trevor Project is the leading national organization that provides crisis intervention and suicide prevention services for LGBTQIA+ youth. They do incredibly important work in a community that is overrepresented in the suicide epidemic.


Here at Chubbies, we believe Pride is not a one-month event, and suicide prevention is not a one day fight. We encourage you to learn more about The Trevor Project here, and to donate directly to The Trevor Project here, should you be so inclined.
