June is Pride Month, meaning we are taking extra care to celebrate the LGBTWQ2S+ movements. Pride has a rich history, and its important to acknowledge its roots and the communities that sparked the Pride fire over half a century ago. The Stonewall riots of 1969 began as activists opposed the police raid of gay bars in the USA. Marsha P. Johnson is known to have thrown the first brick. As a Black transgender woman, she faced further exlusion from Gay communities, violence and increased policing. She continued organizing throughout her life, and died in 1992 after being found in the Hudson River. Trans activists called for a reinvesigation into her death, and her case remains open. 

We acknowledge this history and the importance of recognizing intersections of race, class and ability, gender and sex. We also recognize that Black organizers, activists, writers and artists have been at the forefront of LGBTQ2S+ and anti-police movements, yet have often been excluded, overlooked, and forgotten.  We will be donating a portion of all our June sales to BC Community Alliance and Black Lives Matter Vancouver.
