Hi folks! As we all know, it is Pride Month! I apologize for my delay but I have been debating how to participate in pride as a business owner without utilizing it as a marketing opportunity. We want to continue our ethos and honour people within the community who are unheard and whose voices matter. As a member of the queer community I think it is important to acknowledge my access and privilege and I want to use the platform of Likely General to be an ally to other members of the queer community by making space for marginalized voices and those under-represented during pride.
So this month, we invite you to come into our space and write your name on our shops street-facing window. We encourage and support you to use whichever name(s) represent your most authentic self. If you aren’t in the Toronto area or can’t make it to Likely, please send us a message and we will gladly write your name on our window for you with love.
It goes without saying but no hate in this space. We will not participate in oppressive behaviour or the further silencing of marginalized voices.
A VERY special thank you to Jessica Brousseau for her constant support and encouragement in helping me facilitate this. 🌈🏳️🌈🌈🏳️🌈🌈
