My Mission statement can be summed up into just 3 simple but powerful words that have the potential to create positive change and history for many generations that follow. They are....drum roll please
Connect, Unite & Inspire
You know I have always known that I was different at a very young age...
With the plethora of labels I have learned about throughout my journey in the LGBTQ community... thus-far I have personally learned to focus on a far more important discovery beyond that of any comforting label that I may have clung on to for my own personal reasons and needs. I'm sure we can all relate to this in a moment at some point in our lives. Am I right? Well on my self-educated journey of curiosity of human behavior and desiring a deeper meaning of self and understanding why I even exist. I realized that in just being born I am (You are) worthy of a great life and with the ultimate super power called free will life is what you decide it to be & create for yourself...How do you see yourself in the world? This dictates what you do, how you interact with others and how you relate to yourself. What does this mean exactly? It means that although labels can be helpful in terms of empowering ourselves and relating with others and also not feeling like we are the "only one"... What we should really be focusing on is ultimately not putting ourselves in these boxes and containers of restrictions and beliefs attached to these labels and terms and instead give ourselves permission and allow our souls to express themselves in a more free spirited fashion. That's why I personally relate to the Queer Noun/adjective. It unites a broad spectrum of expressions ranging from gender to sexuality and beingness...humans coming together and shamelessly expressing pride to be the unique beautiful individuals they are whilst at the same time co-creating harmoniously and being an example to their community and to the world. Instead of acceptance, tolerating differences and uniqueness...we are proudly appreciating our own self fluidity and appreciating the diversity in others in terms of Gender, Sexuality, Religion, Ideologies and anything else you can think of.
I don't expect everyone to resonate with this. But I know others out there feel the same... What better way to express that then through what we wear to the outside world as a message of pride and courage to be who we are.
20-30% of profits will be going to LGBTQ/Queer Non- Profit organizations that are very active queer oriented organizations and have a very strong presence in our community the bottom line is one of the many goals or visions with this evolving movement is to provide essential support to these organizations and support safe spaces to allow the natural and organic process of self discovery and freedom to express ones self.
There's a brave Lion in all of us
It just takes one stone to create a powerful ripple that then effects the pond & alters history.
