This #Pride, we're celebrating our LGBTQ+ partners (employees) and the allies they say played important roles in their journey. 🌈 For Arielle, that person is her mother, Lori, who accepted her with unwavering love when she came out as transgender. “A lot of trans people I know don’t have parents to help navigate it… A lot of us come home to an environment of fear and pain. But for me, I came home to a mom who always just wanted me to be happy. She was a safe haven.” Thank you, Arielle and Lori, for sharing your story with us and for showing us the difference love and acceptance can make.

This year, we entered #Pride in the middle of a pandemic and a social justice and equality movement. For Shauna, managing director of the Chicago Roastery and a Black member of the LGBTQ+ community, it's also a time of hope. 🌈 Shauna usually spends Pride with her wife of 15 years, attending parades throughout the country. This year, she's reflecting on how the pandemic forced us to slow down, and inspired the world to come together in solidarity to fight for what matters. "The joy that ended up being such a big part of Pride, you see these glimmers – ‘Black Lives Matter’ being painted onto streets, celebratory and peaceful moments happening amid the outrage. This will be hard, and uncomfortable, and we have a long way to go to make systemic change, but we can make space for beautiful moments as well.” This Pride, we're celebrating our LGBTQ+ partners and their journeys to becoming their true selves.
