WE ARE NOT HELPLESS – WE CAN GET SHIT DONE!
Everyone has heard about Orlando. Everyone is talking about Orlando. People are coming out in droves to donate blood. Some of us are too far to physically help. Some of us can not donate blood.
We have seen candle light vigils happening all over the world. Places I never expected to see people pulling together to show their solidarity. Showing regardless of what borders we live behind; we are ONE COMMUNITY and we will not be silenced, we will not change.
Some of you may be wondering how you can help. So here are a few ways you can offer your support.
I invite you to read all the options and information below so you can make an informed decision and rest at ease that your money is actually going where it needs to be.
Fort Troff has set up the FT Orlando Tragedy fund where you can easily donate $10USD and Fort Troff will match DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR. Once it becomes clear where or how the money is needed Fort Troff will send the money accordingly. Step by step accountability assured.
Reach out to the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence in your area or the largest area closest too you. Ask them how you can help. For example the Sisters in Toronto collected donations at the candle light vigil. The Sisters are all very active in the LGBT community and will have first hand knowledge of where resources are truly needed.
Support us by sponsoring us for the Pride and Remembrance Run; we now have 50 more people that we will be taking time to think about, reflect on and celebrate that will not be here with us any more. The Pride and Remembrance Run raises money to help the LGBT Community grow stronger every day. Not just in times of horrific tragedy but 365 days a year.
LGBT Community centres, your local pubs, night clubs and bars, restaurants, to name a few, all work hard to create a community that is safe for all LGBT individuals every day of the year.
So make sure you keep in mind to look for the RAINBOW sticker in the window when you are looking for a place to shop or eat.
Visit your “gay village” in whatever form it is in your area – GET OUT AND BE PROUD!

95% of the items that we review, we pay for ourselves. Regardless, sometimes things don't go the way we plan them to go and when that happens we clean up the items really good and then put them up for sale in our shop at a deep discount for you to grab for yourself.
If you don't see anything there and would like to support us directly feel free to make a donation. We would love it! Another way to support us would be to visit and shop at our friends below.
