Friendly reminder that rainbows and parties are all well and good, but put your money where your mouth is and support your local LGBTQIA+ organizations!

Critical Mass Pride Ride, PGH Underwear Ride, and more for Pride Month 2022

If you haven’t already noticed by the momentary increase of corporations and businesses showcasing the colors of the rainbow on their logos… June is Pride Month 🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍⚧️

To us Pride Month is a huge deal, as it commemorates the June 1969 Stonewall riots, aka the catalyst for the LGBT civil rights movement in the United States. That’s the core of why it is so important, and thus, we celebrate!

You too can support our LGBTQIA+ community by donating to local organizations, remembering that the original leaders of this movement were trans women of color and Black lesbians, and by showing up to these great local rides and events!
