June is PRIDE month, an entire month dedicated to the uplifting of LGBTQ voices, a celebration of LGBTQ culture and the support of LGBTQ rights.
You probably knew that the rainbow flag is used as a symbol of LGBTQ pride, but did you know that each color on the flag has its own meaning? Red is symbolic of life, orange is for healing, yellow is sunshine, green is nature, blue represents harmony and purple is spirit. The 2021 PRIDE candle label was designed by local artist, Larissa Graham of Wild at Heart Art Shop. A rainbow and two love birds representing PRIDE Love. Smells so much like rainbow skittles, you'll want to grab a spoon! (but don't)
All people should be treated equally, regardless of who they are and who they love. Love is Love, no matter what.
$5.00 from each PRIDE candle sold will be donated to SPECTRUM, Waterloo Region's Rainbow Community Space. SPECTRUM is Waterloo Region’s first ever LGBTQ / Rainbow community space! SPECTRUM offers programming, social groups, special projects, research, events, resources, a DVD library and a safe and inclusive community.
