Bouquet of PRIDE – Minutiae Necklace – Limited Edition


June marks the beginning of Pride Month!

What is pride month? Until a few years ago, I wasn’t fully informed about this global movement.

So. Here is a quick story. πŸ³οΈβ€πŸŒˆ
The catalyst for pride was actually a riot in the States.. In the 1960’s, the police would frequently raid Queer bars and the community, shaming and bullying them. πŸ³οΈβ€πŸŒˆ
In June, during one of the raids, all hell broke loose when the LGBTQ community fought back. Since then, many countries have finally woken up to the thunderous Global cry of the community and its allies.πŸ³οΈβ€πŸŒˆ
They were ‘given’ the right to marry, adopt children, to fight, have jobs and lead a life without worrying about their identity and to simply exist as they are.
At Alankaara, we launch a collection every year called ‘Love is Love’. With limited access to our workspace we still managed to make a series.

We also identified Humsafar Foundation to be doing amazing work for the LGBTQ community and will be donating 50% of the profits from this collection to their cause. Let’s call it OUR cause because that’s what allies do. 🌱

“your identity is a reason forΒ pride, not a reason toΒ hide.”

HAPPY PRIDE MONTH! πŸ³οΈβ€πŸŒˆπŸŒ±πŸ³οΈβ€πŸŒˆ
