Stonewall Rising: LGBTQ March for Black Lives Matter Huge Success

Last Saturday hundreds of people gathered at Diversity Richmond in support of LGBTQ Black Lives Matter. If you were here, you know what a powerful experience it was. The inspiring remarks by LGBTQ Black leaders, the beautiful music, and the true sense of community that was present. The event was supported by 14 local organizations. This is but one example of good work to come.

Supporting such events is one reason Diversity Richmond exists. For over 20 years our organization has jumped at every opportunity to help. Our mission has expanded over the years, but the heart of Diversity has not changed, albeit stronger and more expansive today.

Community support and Diversity Thrift proceeds are how we continue our good work. With the on-going pandemic, having been closed for weeks, the store just recently reopened with reduced store hours. 

We are well aware of the financial strains that the pandemic has placed on many people. If you can make a donation during Give OUT Day, it will be most appreciated. If this is not a good time to donate, we understand.

Stay safe,
Bill Harrison, Director
