With You: For Pride Month & Beyond

We’re celebrating what makes you, you during Pride and every other month of the year.
WRITTEN BY Tayllor Henczel

 

We’re all about doing better by our planet — we also want to do better by all of the people who live here. Your perspective, story and experiences are important when it comes to environmentalism, sustainability, and everything beyond. We’re here to celebrate what makes you, you.

Enter, With You.

 

With You: For Pride Month & Beyond

We’re With You — all of you. What you know about yourself today, what you’ll discover tomorrow, and everything in between.

Being yourself can be a lot of work. Getting to know yourself, learning to love every little bit of you, and giving a big “hey, hi, hello” to the world.

“With You” means that we support you, and are with you in the fight for equality on your own personal journey. Whether we’re allies or part of the community ourselves, we’re here with you — during Pride and beyond.

What Does “With You” Look Like

Come hang out with us this Pride Month and join the conversation. With our wider community, we’ll be highlighting LGBTQ+ voices all month (and beyond) on the tentree blog, newsletter and across all of our social channels, as well as donating to an organization each June.

Internally, we’re having a virtual workshop with Rainbow Refugee, a Vancouver based non-profit that supports people seeking refugee protection in Canada because of persecution based on sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression or HIV status. Plus, we’ll be donating towards Rainbow Refugee’s work. We’ll also be reviewing our employee guidelines to make sure we’re supporting all the diverse people of our team.

We hope that by using our platform to show our support and amplify LGBTQ+ voices, we can inspire and bring joy to people in the LGBTQ+ community, while also helping educate non-community members who want to be good allies.

PS: this isn’t just a June thing. With You extends far beyond one month, or one year. We hope that this Pride month can be a starting point to a conversation that lasts for years to come.

Why “With You”

We want to use our platform here at tentree to empower people in the LGBTQ+ community to be proud to be themselves. Our uniqueness as individuals is powerful, and we shouldn’t have to hide that. We have LGBTQ+ coworkers, family, friends, and customers at tentree, and we want to show our love and support for them with this campaign.

Sustainability and the outdoors should be accessible for everyone, and that includes marginalized communities like the LGBTQ+ community. We’re all about doing the work to help the planet and its people. We believe all people are equal and that everyone should have the choice to live sustainably.
We’re #WithYou, proudly.

 

Join the conversation! We’ll be highlighting LGBTQ+ voices on social and The Environmentor all month long (and beyond). Make sure you’re subscribed to our newsletter to stay in the loop.
