Celebrate Pride at Trove! June 22, 2016 02:00
Here at Trove, we value the right to be YOU, a stylish you of course! We believe in living and working in an inclusive environment, free from any judgment, harm or negativity. When we were targeted by vandalism repeatedly in 2014 and 2015 for simply displaying a Pride sticker in our front window, we were really taken back by such negativity and oppression within our own neighborhood. After receiving an overwhelming response of support from the community and local to national news sources, it has pushed us to become advocates for what it means to be YOU in our communities of Bloor West Village and the Annex.
In response to the vandalism we faced and our continuous support for the LGBTQ2S community, on Friday June 24th we will be hosting an in-store and online fundraiser where 25% of all sales made throughout the day will be donated to LGBT Youth Line. The Lesbian Gay Bi Trans Youth Line is a peer to peer phone, email and instant message support service for queer, trans and questioning youth for ages 26 and under in Ontario. We will also be taking in-store and online donations all week in support of the organization at both our Annex and Bloor West locations.
We are welcoming all local business owners to stop by and grab a complimentary Pride sticker or window decal and will be including them with each purchase and donation made in-store. For those attending our event at our Bloor West Village location, rainbow coloured popsicles will also be available (while supplies last)!
We thank you in advance for coming out to support such an important cause in the LGBTQ2S community and look forward to spreading the love with you on Friday June 24th both in-store and online.
See you Friday!
The Trove Team
