Celebrating You

Welcome to our new blog series, Celebrating You!

A few months ago we asked on our Facebook and Instagram pages, if anyone would like to share their coming out story or experience in the LGBTQ+ community. We received SO many replies! These are deeply personal and honest experiences, and I feel so very honored to be sharing them with you. It's not easy being vulnerable, and everyone who shared their story is incredibly brave.

Stories will be posted on Monday each week, with the first being released on May 6, 2019. These posts will continue weekly until we run out :)
