🌈HAPPY HAPPY PRIDE MONTH, PALS! 🌈 We’re proud everyday of the year, but it’s extra fun to don some rainbows and celebrate LOVE!
We wanted to do a bit more this year. That’s why we are uber excited to be teaming up with an organization that we admire dearly – Family Equality!!! We’re donating 50% of our web sales proceeds from our Rainbowface & Mr Gray socks!
Family Equality has been advocating for LGBTQ+ families and those wanting to start their family since 1979! Their org connects prospective parents, youth, and families all over the U.S. through a thriving online community full of peer support spaces and at events like their annual gathering of LGBTQ+ families – it’s the largest of its kind in the world!
Family Equality also provides education for anyone who needs it. Their resource library is chock-full of info from adoption advice to trans fertility. Additionally, Family Equality provides extensive training for companies seeking a more inclusive work-environment.
On top of all this, they fight and advocate for legal equality for all LGBTQ+ families. There’s still a great deal of adoption discrimination, and in 11 states you can be turned away from adopting or fostering for being in the community. Family Equality is fighting for the John Lewis Every Child Deserves a Family Act in Congress, which would put an end to such unjust discrimination and also protect queer youth currently in care. Learn more about the act and support it here!
Pride is personal to us at Pals!!! If you hadn’t heard, we’re an LGBTQ+ owned small biz, and our founder Hannah Lavon recently grew her family by +1! Meet baby Cleo and Hannnah’s fam!
“To me, these socks represent a truly progressive metaphor: that even if someone is not in the queer community, they will support your right to have human rights, to vote in your best interests, and to even be your friend!”
We’re beyond psyched to have Rainbowface + Mr Gray for Pride this year, and even more excited to be partnering with an org we believe in and love!
