Proud to Be: Celebrating Pride Month at Rue La La

Proud to Be: Celebrating Pride Month at Rue La La

We’re celebrating Pride Month in style and have launched an exclusive-to-Rue tee, with proceeds benefiting GLSEN. GLSEN is the leading national education organization focused on ensuring safe schools for all students – regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression.

––––––––––––––––––––––––––

Our tee features “Proud to Be ____”, and throughout Pride Month, we’re asking our employees to fill in the blank. Today, we’re chatting with Nicole Da Silva from Studio Production. 

 

Rue La La: Who or what are you proud to be? 

Nicole Da Silva: I am proud to be a friend/homie and ally of the LGBTQ+ community.

 

RLL: What does love mean to you?

NS: Love means acceptance. When you can completely accept someone for exactly who they are – that’s real love!

 

RLL: What can our Members do as activists for the LGBTQ+ community?

NS: They can donate to GLSEN and other charities helping the LGBTQ+ community. And also, SPEAK UP! Cheer them on! Stick up for our homies! See something, say something. They deserve the same love and respect as everyone else in the world!

RLL: How are you celebrating Pride Month?

NS: This Pride Month I got to participate in the RGG shoots as well as go to the Pride parade and donate to GLSEN.

 

RLL: Who in the LGBTQ+ community inspires you?

NS: My cousin. Being able to come out to a traditional, old-school thinking type of family was inspiring, and seeing them change their views gave me and all my cousins more confidence to be ourselves in our own ways.

 

RLL: Did you know about GLSEN before today? What do you think about their efforts?  

NS: I found out about GLSEN when I started working at Rue four years ago. I think they are doing an amazing job spreading awareness, and I am so happy we got to work with them this year.  

 

*Between the dates of May 31, 2019, and June 30, 2019, we will donate 100% of the net proceeds (up to 250 units) from the purchase of this item to GLSEN.
