We love celebrating every person and every kind of love all year long, but June is a month when communities around the world commemorate the Stonewall Riots (June 1969 - 50 years ago!!) and recognize the impact of LGBTQ+ people around the world. We chose to start our business in the Mass Ave Arts District, precisely because it was (and still is) a gay-friendly neighborhood, right here in the heart of the Midwest. We wanted to be a safe space for our LGBTQ+ community to visit and shop at, a place where EVERY person is welcomed.
In Indianapolis, you can find out all about IndyPride events here. Our favorite has always been the Cadillac Barbie Pride Parade, not only because it passes right by our front door each June, but because it is such a celebration of LGBTQ+ pride. Over the years is has grown to include many of Indy's businesses, churches and community organizations. I hope all of our LGBTQ+ friends feel especially loved, honored and protected when they see this outpouring of support from the Ally community.
