WHY WE’RE FULL OF PRIDE
As lovers of hair, we’ve seen first and foremost the power of self-expression and individual identity. We have always been big believers in celebrating what makes you, you, and making space for everyone to do so freely. We are proud to be able to use our platform to wrap the LGBTQ community in love this month, and always.
A LITTLE BACKGROUND
Pride month is celebrated every June to honor the Stonewall Uprising that occurred in Manhattan in 1969. On June 28th, 1969, members of the gay community fought back with a series of demonstrations when the police became violent during a raid. These acts of rebellion are widely considered to be one of the catalysts leading to the gay liberation movement—and what established the first Pride parade a year later, on the anniversary of the uprising.
In honor of this historic day and the establishment of Pride month all those years ago, we are celebrating and honoring the LGBTQ community by donating 100% of sales from 6/28 + 6/29 on AQUIS.com to the Trevor Project.
WHO WE’RE PROUD TO SUPPORT
We are honored to support the life-saving work of The Trevor Project. It is their mission to end suicide among LGBTQ youth. Through their network of accredited life-saving and life-affirming programs and services, they work tirelessly to create safe, accepting, and inclusive environments over the phone, online, and through text for youth in need.
