As we celebrate the message of love, equality, and inclusivity for Pride month, please consider donating to the Trevor Project.

According to the National Alliance on Mental illness:

  • LGBTQ people are at a higher risk than the general population for suicidal thoughts and suicide attempts.
  • Statistical data indicates LGB adults are twice as likely to experience a mental health condition.
  • LGBTQ high school students are almost 5X as likely to attempt suicide in comparison to heterosexual students."

This fantastic charity supports suicide prevention and crisis intervention for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and questioning youth. Your donation ensures all the available programs stay operational. You can make a one-time donation or have reoccurring monthly withdraws.

Sending everyone love, happiness, and a Happy Pride. Safe & Happy Travels! 😊
