June is Pride Month here in the United States. However, here at TarValon.Net, Pride Month has a much more significance for our community because so many here identify as members or allies of the LGBTQQIP2SAA community. TarValon.Net wants you to know

Listed below are a few LGBTQ+-friendly charities if you're looking for ways to actively support for June throughout the year.
Soon you will be able to share your own pride and or show your support here on the forums with fun badges and signature graphics! Look for these around mid-June.

The Servant of All Team is taking inspiration from May's awareness month by posting educational facts about the LGBTQ+ community throughout the month. In addition to this, feel free to share below interesting facts or what you would like the hetero-cis community to know. Please include if we have your permission to anonymously share some of these on our social media accounts in order to reach a larger audience.

There are even more surprises to share as the month progresses so check back often to see what's in store! :D

This was my social work internship project last year, to develop a one stop resources page for LGBTQIA+ students on campus. It is very Western New York centric, but we also tried to include a plethora of resources at the regional and national level for our out of state students as well. Additionally, I realized that it was going to be a major resource for regular community members, because of the sheer lack of visibility locally of these resources.

. Amazing work graphics team!! I think I see new vinyl stickers in my future...

For those of us who use Instagram, theaidsmemorial is an incredible (if somewhat sad) account where people post pictures, bios, and stories of those who passed away from HIV/AIDS, particularly during the 80s and 90s when the pandemic raged through the queer community. It's an incredible resource for a crucial part of queer history.

Thank you for sharing both of those, Cattrin and Dianna!

Following Soro's lead, we'll be sharing some facts for this month.

Posting on behalf another who sent additional resources privately but wishes to remain anonymous.

Covenant House - https://www.covenanthouse.org/

Although a catholic founded organization they are open to all and very supportive of lgbtq youth. They provide, meals, beds and showers in facilities in lgbtq neighborhoods. Their rules are not unreasonable. Simply put, Covenant House saves lives. ... They are often the last hope for street kids on the edge. They make a difference in places and for young people that parents have thrown away, churches have ejected, schools have expelled and others have exploited. They stand were and when others do not.

The Marsha P Johnson Institute - https://marshap.org/about-mpji/

Marsha P Johnson is more than an icon to [folx]. She was [a] friend... and saved [lives].The MPJ Institute focuses on black transwomen because that was Her identity. I support their cause because without their honoree I would not be here today.

Is there a store option to ship internationally? It seems to be set up to send based on USA zip codes.

Question. Would it be possible to get a scaled down version of the stripes badge? I am a little neurotic and want it to fit with my signature. Maybe like the size of the other badges?
