Hello, everyone and happy pride. Someone in the LGBTQ plus community that I am really inspired by is Harvey Milk. As the first openly gay political official in California, I really admire him for his leadership and activism and being truly fearless in this fight for equality. I wish everyone a happy Pride Month.
Happy Pride Month and Happy June, even though pride’s canceled this year for the parades and marches, you know, I think I still plan on celebrating at home with all my close friends, my family and, of course, both my pugs. We know how to be loud and proud, and that’s what Pride Month is all about and be happy with who you are and love yourself. In regards to a word of support for the LGBTQ-plus community, I will fall back to my go to Queen RuPaul herself With, “If you can’t love yourself, how in the hell are you gonna love somebody else?”. Can I get an amen?
To all my LGBTQIU folks out there, just a reminder that you are valued, you are worthy and you are loved. One person that I look up to and I admire his Apple’s CEO Tim Cook. Tim is the first openly gay CEO of a Fortune 500 company, and it was his operational expertise That saw Apple capitalizing on the vision from Steve Jobs and ultimately transform Apple from being nearly bankrupt to being the world’s first trillion-dollar company. I admire his intuition, and I also admire the risk that he took when he joined Apple. Happy, happy pride, everyone.
My favorite part about pride as a queer woman is remembering history of it all, from Stonewall to Marsha P. Johnson, my personal hero and all of the stories in between. It’s so important to stay inspired and remember where we came from, where we are now and where we like to go. And even if we’re celebrating indoors or in less conventional ways this year, there’s still so much to celebrate. Happy pride.
