“This year Pride looks different. Partnering with the It Gets Better Project for A Digital Pride Experience is an opportunity to share my story and encourage positive change during this historic time,” explains Peppermint.
“Our community has a long history of resilience in the face of discrimination. At the very least, this moment is an opportunity to pass that tradition on to the younger generation.”
