June 1st marks the beginning of Pride Month, a month where we celebrate love and identity in all its forms and the resiliency of the 2SLGBTQI+ community — while also advocating for the immense work that remains to be done. This year, we are especially reminded that the progress seen over the last few years could be short-lived. The world largely continues to attack the rights and safety of the 2SLGBTQI+ community. We see examples of this in government (anti-homosexuality laws in place in Uganda this year, drag shows being banned in Tennssee), in media and culture, in day-to-day lives where LGBT+ communities are targets for violence, and even in schools (Pride flag taken down at Ontario school).
Lucky Iron Fish Enterprise stands in solidarity with the 2SLGBTQI+ community. We are a proud certified supplier with the Canadian Gay Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, and believe a successful economy is an inclusive economy.
This Pride Month and every other day, we refuse to be inert in the face of the hate and violence targeted to members of this community. We stand for a safe and inclusive society where all its citizens are allowed to thrive.
