Being it’s Pride month and given the political nature of our times, we’ve decided to sprinkle a little LGBTQ history into our posts.
Fearsome feels it’s important to remember from where we came as to not let our rights slip through our grasp. It wasn’t easy obtaining the rights that were already guaranteed us. Many of our tribe who walked before us, not only fought for these rights but some lost their livelihoods and even their lives clearing the path we have at this moment. A path that could be taken away.
I have to say I agree with Fearsome. So we will start with this little video.
Don’t ever forget. Don’t ever stop marching forward.
Don’t forget to dance along the way.
