When we plan our content for the blog, we think about a few different things:
1. Does this pertain to our audience?
2. Is this timely?
3. And does this share our RVE culture?
So when we thought about June, and what we wanted to share with our readers this month, discussing the importance of Pride Month was a no brainer. Pride Month celebrates the LGBTQIA+ community, as well as recognizes the hardships faced, the battles fought, and the tragedies encountered. It’s a month to show support for LGBTQIA+ rights, cultures, and communities, and Red Velvet Events is proud to join in the movement and the showing of support.
Initially we wondered if proclaiming our support of the LGBTQIA+ community and Pride Month was too political. And then we thought, This shouldn’t be dubbed political commentary at all. Because supporting your fellow human and providing inclusiveness isn’t a difficult or politically-charged decision. It’s basic. It’s easy. And we believe in it. We encourage those who want to know more about the history of Pride Month to read this article, as well as researching the Pride events in your community. For our fellow 512ers, Austin Pride 2018 is on August 11 at Fiesta Gardens.
Red Velvet Events supports people as they are. Inclusiveness is a fundamental tenet of our culture. We’re proud to stand with and by the LGBTQIA+ community during Pride Month and every other month. Will you stand with us?
