Welcome to my new part of the blog, 7 Things! It’s basically a list of, well, 7 things! I’ve decided to kick it off with ways to celebrate pride this month, since June is pride month! *cheering*
7 Ways to Celebrate Pride this Month
- Donate to LGBTQ+ supporting charities.
This is pretty basic but is definitely super useful. Donating will help the LGBTQ+ community, and it is pretty easy. Here are some places you can donate to:
- Hold a fundraiser.
Similar to donating, but usually you’ll be able to give more money! I’m fundraising by selling art that celebrates Pride and giving 100% of the money to GLAAD. Win-win!
- Educate yourself.
This is a great way to spend your time during June, learning all about LGBTQ+ and the history of it.
- Teach others.
Similar to educating yourself, when you teach others, they gain important knowledge.
- Support LGBTQ+ owned Businesses
When you support LGBTQ+-owned businesses, you get cool stuff from cool people! Bonus points if you can get items that “advertise” pride.
- Craft LGBTQ+ Themed Items
This is a fun way to spend your time and exercise your creativity! You could make bracelets or paint flags on canvases.
- Be aware and respectful.
Just be aware! Remember to ask for people’s pronouns, challenge hateful speech, and treat everyone equally.
Hope you enjoyed my first post in 7 Things!
