Every June, people across the world celebrate the joys and recognize the challenges of being part of the LGBTQIA+ community. The first Pride was established in 1970 to remember the victims of the Stonewall riots the year before. But Pride month has grown into a time for remembrance and support of the diversity of sexuality and gender experiences in our world.
It’s also a time for everyone to revisit their awareness of the difficulties that the LGBTQIA+ community faces, and how we all can work together to make sure that all people can live with dignity, equal rights and affirmation of their true selves.
This year, Mud Bay will be marching to support our team members, our customers and our community in our hometown of Olympia, Washington’s Pride Parade. Come walk with us.
