We believe in love. Love is powerful. It transcends hate and has healing power. Love does not discriminate. That is why we stand in support of the LGBTQIA+ community. There is so much work to be done in our industry to ensure intersectional equality and justice for all, but in honor of gay pride, we choose to celebrate the strides the community has taken in recent decades, including the legalization of gay marriage in 2015.
Inclusivity is one of our core beliefs, which is why we believe no one should be ostracized or discriminated against, especially for the things they cannot change. We aim to be a safe resource for those that feel judged for choosing to marry whomever they want, whether that be someone of the same sex, or not. Love is love.
We find beauty in love, no matter how it looks. Cheers (clink clink) to how far we’ve come since we started in 2011 and to the strides we continue to make in the events industry in showing acceptance for all.
We put together this rainbow shoot to show our support for the LGBTQIA+ community. The pride flag colors each hold a different meaning, and each color represents an important value of the LGBTQIA+ community. Read below for what each color represents!
The red in the flag represents life. This makes sense if you think about how blood is red and how often blood is thought of as a vital life force of the body. Red also represents passion among many cultures. And, passion is ideally where life originates from.
Orange represents healing. As a color, orange is believed to be a fun and celebratory color. Fun and celebration are both healing activities.
Yellow represents sunlight. The color yellow functions as the flag’s radiant and bright center. The color yellow is said to stimulate new ideas and thoughts.
There’s a lot of green in nature, which is what this color on the original pride flag is meant to convey. Nature is a healing place, and the color green is associated with prosperity and growth.
The blue in the original pride flag was for serenity. Little is more important than the ability to feel calm and serene. Blue is known as a relaxing color that soothes the soul. The color blue is often used for nighttime consumer products to represent bedtime and calmness.
The last color, purple, represents spirit. Purple is often thought of as a regal, royal color that, on its own, denotes pride. Like blue, purple is considered a calming color, but rather than being associated only with calm, the color purple connects us to the spiritual realm.
