As June rolls around, the world gears up to celebrate Pride Month, a time dedicated to honouring and supporting the 2SLGBTQ+ community. While it's heartening to witness the increased visibility and acceptance during this period, it's crucial to move beyond mere tokenism and address the phenomenon of "rainbow washing" by businesses. At Rebellious Unicorns, a 100% 2SLGBTQ+ owned and operated company, we understand the importance of authentic support for the community, not just in June, but every day of the year. In this blog post, we delve into the significance of June and Pride Month while highlighting our commitment to fostering inclusivity and offering bulk pricing on flags to spread the spirit of pride.
Embracing the Significance of June: June holds a special place in the hearts of the 2SLGBTQ+ community and its allies worldwide. It marks the anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, a pivotal event in Queer history that sparked the modern-day fight for equality and liberation. Pride Month serves as a commemoration of these struggles, an opportunity to recognize the progress made, and a call to action for further advancements in the fight against discrimination.
The Pitfall of Rainbow Washing: Unfortunately, Pride Month has also become a target for corporations engaging in "rainbow washing." This term refers to the practice of using rainbow-colored branding, logos and marketing strategies solely for profit and superficial displays of support. While it's encouraging to see rainbow flags and merchandise flooding stores, it's important to evaluate the authenticity of these actions and the commitment of businesses behind them. True support extends beyond capitalizing on a moment; it involves sustained efforts to create inclusive environments, amplify 2SLGBTQ+ voices, and support relevant causes.
Rebellious Unicorns: Supporting 2SLGBTQ+ 365 Days a Year: At Rebellious Unicorns, we firmly believe that supporting the 2SLGBTQ+ community is not confined to a single month. As an entirely 2SLGBTQ+ owned and operated company, we understand the unique challenges and triumphs that individuals within the community face every day. Our commitment to inclusivity extends throughout the year, as we actively engage with the community and work towards positive change.
NEW: Bulk Pricing on Flags: Spreading the Spirit of Pride: To help individuals and organizations embrace the spirit of pride and show their support, Rebellious Unicorns is delighted to offer bulk pricing on flags.
