Personal Note: Yes, the vandalizing occurred in Virginia. The unified assistance and support of local businesses also came from Virginia.
Don’t be silenced because your community acts out violently. Create and live in the world you want. Thank you, Richard. Thank you, Roanoke. Thank you to all the businesses that stepped in. Thank you for all the allies that stepped up. Thank you to the community that speaks out for their fellow “family.” Thank you, Ellen. Thank you, CoverGirl.
I wish everyone a Happy Roanoke Pride this weekend!
(And Roanoke, I am so happy to be a resident of your city.)
