THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS BEING EXTRA IN JUNE, CHECK OUT HOW STIIIZY CELEBRATED PRIDE THIS YEAR!
This PRIDE month we recognize the valuable contributions of LGBTQIA+ individuals across California, and throughout America. Our STIIIZY crew joined in the celebration festivities in both San Francisco and Long Beach during Pride. We choose to celebrate diversity and encourage everyone to be proud of who they are and to be unapologetically themselves!
Returning after a pandemic pause, the world famous SF PRIDE Parade was in full swing this year and our STIIIZY squad wasn’t going to miss out on this party! Thousands of people lined the streets of San Francisco on June 26th for the 52nd annual San Francisco Pride Parade and Celebration. Under the theme #LoveWillKeepUsTogether, this year's event had more than 200 parade contingents including one representing STIIIZY’s Bay Area retail stores! Volunteers and Brand Ambassadors marched in this year’s Pride parade adorned in rainbow colored flags in a demonstration of support for our LGBTQIA+ family. We were also joined by special guest influencers,
Additionally, our STIIIZY squad attended the Long Beach Pride parade and festival over the weekend of 7/10 to show our solidarity. STIIIZY squad brand ambassadors interacted with parade goers, supporters, and other allies as we made our way around Ocean Blvd during the parade. Amongst the crowd we met plenty of folks that showed off their pens and showed us love, so we shared the love right back by giving out STIIIZY pride flags and shirts to celebrate pride!
It’s always a great time to come out, support and party, but we know that our actions should be met with intention; which is why we also supported the San Francisco Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Pride Celebration Committee by providing a donation to help them advance their mission.
Our participation in these Pride celebrations signifies our commitment to standing in solidarity with the community in their ongoing struggle against discrimaination and injustice.
