Happy Chooseday and Happy Pride Month! Here at GoodCompany, we believe in celebrating diversity, promoting inclusivity, and uplifting LGBTQIA+ communities through the way we work, dream and love. During this National Pride Month, we want to take a moment to honor the incredible resilience and strength of the LGBTQIA+ communities worldwide. This is a time to reflect on the progress made, acknowledge the challenges still faced, and come together to support these communities in the ongoing journey for equality. The history of Pride Month traces back to the Stonewall Riots of 1969—a pivotal moment in the fight for LGBTQIA+ rights. June is a month of celebration, remembrance, and advocacy, reminding us that the work towards equality is far from over. As we recognize and honor the achievements and struggles of LGBTQIA+ individuals, we invite you to join us in standing with LGBTQIA+ communities, fostering inclusivity, and creating positive change. Celebrate YOUR unique pride, uplift LGBTQIA+ communities and/or level-up your allyship! Here are three easy tips to be an ally this Pride Month:
Educate Yourself: Take the time to learn about LGBTQIA+ history, issues, and experiences. Read books, watch documentaries, listen to podcasts and playlists, and engage with credible online resources. By expanding your knowledge, you can better understand the challenges faced by LGBTQIA+ individuals and actively contribute to creating a more inclusive society.
Amplify LGBTQIA+ Voices: Use your own voice to amplify the voices of LGBTQIA+ individuals and share stories, art, music and achievements on your social media channels. By providing a platform for LGBTQIA+ voices to be heard, you contribute to uplifting the communities.
Support LGBTQIA+ Organizations: One impactful way to make a difference is by supporting LGBTQIA+ organizations. GoodCompany proudly supports Minus18, a leading Australian charity focused on empowering LGBTQIA+ youth. This Pride Month, every donation made to Minus18 will be dedicated to creating free LGBTQIA+ workshops for Australian schools. Your contribution can help foster inclusivity, education, and support for the younger generation.
Together, let's create a world where everyone can live authentically and without fear of discrimination. We have come a long way, but there is still so much work to be done. By actively participating in Pride Month and supporting LGBTQIA+ organizations and communities, we can continue to make a positive impact on the journey towards equality.
So, this Pride Month we invite you to come together, learn, grow, and create a more inclusive, harmonious society. Let's celebrate diversity, embrace love, and uplift one another. Happy Pride Month everyone!
