June is Pride Month! This month is all about showing our love and support for everyone. Whether you identify as LGBTQIA+ or are an ally, everyone can join in the celebration of love. Here’s what a few of us at BeautyBio HQ had to say about what Pride means to us. What does Pride mean to you? We would love for you to join the conversation with @BeautyBio on Instagram or scroll down for a list of incredible organizations to support. We will be showing our support and celebrating all month long as well as pledging a portion of BeautyBio.com sales to LGBTQIA+ causes.
"Stop and listen to the conversations that are happening within the LGBTQIA+ community...be an ally for somebody who might need someone in their corner." - Ashley, Director of Social and Influencer Marketing
The mission of equality and inclusion for all is a cause that is near and dear to us here at BeautyBio. Love is love, and it deserves celebration. We are dedicated to supporting the fight for equality and accepting people for who they are.
“Loving one another and supporting each other and uplifting those in your community” - Caitlin, Digital Marketing Manager
Pride is a celebration and we're all about the glitter and glam of it all! The parties, parades, and events are essential for visibility, but it's also important to consider ways you can contribute to creating a more inclusive society. There are a number of ways to get involved with organizations that are dedicated to raising awareness, creating life-saving resources, and support systems for the LGBTQIA+ community.
"Listening and learning, joining conversations, donating or even just showing up!" - Abby, Vice President of Ecommerce
Celebrate Pride with us all month long on our Instagram. Every Monday a member of the LGBTQIA+ community from the BeautyBio team will be taking over our Instagram Stories to share what Pride Month means to them.
Looking for additional ways to show your support? Here are a few incredible charities to get involved with to continue the fight for equality for all.
"Family Equality’s mission is to advance legal and lived equality for LGBTQ families, and for those who wish to form them, through building community, changing hearts and minds, and driving policy change."
"Point Foundation empowers promising lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer students to achieve their full academic and leadership potential – despite the obstacles often put before them – to make a significant impact on society."
"Resource Center pursues societal equity by proudly offering LGBTQIA+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning, intersex, asexual, plus) affirming resources designed to improve health and wellness, strengthen families and communities, and provide transformative education and advocacy."
"Black Tie Dinner is a non-profit organization that raises funds for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) supportive organizations serving North Texas through a premier event of empowerment, education, and entertainment in partnership with the community."

We believe love always wins no matter the orientation. We are committed to creating positive change in not only the beauty industry, but in our society overall. Our mission is to continue to empower the community, remain dedicated to showing love for what makes us different, and contributing in any way we can. We hope you will join us in the support and celebration of love in all forms and the growing efforts to encourage change.
