Just Five Things- Celebrating Pride!

We are so excited to re-debut our weekly Just Five Things Newsletter this June, just in time for #PrideMonth! During this month, we get to celebrate the amazing feats of some pretty extraordinary humans. Folks like the tremendous Rev. Dr. Pauli Murray, who profoundly shaped our national consciousness as a civil rights activist. While many have only recently started to understand the lasting legacy they carried, Murray’s statements and practices regarding Pronouns & Gender were always worth highlighting.

While #Pride certainly creates opportunities for celebration we also have to create awareness about the most looming issues deeply impacting our Queer community and loved ones. In 2023, anti-trans bills continue to be nationally and globally introduced. Trans Legislation Tracker shares essential updates on all bills that seek to block trans people from receiving primary healthcare, education, legal recognition, and the right to exist publicly.

Staying grounded is an integral part of our advocacy work here at J Reed Consulting LLC and we encourage others to create pathways for these practices. Whether it’s through laughing at 32 Minutes of Jokes From LGBQT+ Comics or seeking new avenues for Self-Soothing: What it is, Benefits, & Techniques to Get Started, we know finding joy and remaining resilient amid tremendous difficulties is essential. This article is also a solid reminder of the power of resilience throughout the ecosystem, See How Algae Could Change Our World by Jennifer Kite-Powell.

Weekly, we celebrate Black women, girls, and femmes who are changing the world. This week we want to celebrate Halle Bailey whose most recent feature role in Disney’s The Little Mermaid has caused so much celebration. The film and its star remind us of the significance of representation in our lives!
