While we weren’t vendors at Kentuckiana Pride this year, we didn’t let it stop us from celebrating our fourth year with them! It was a long, hot day, but thankfully the BLoFISH bus had some sweet, sweet A/C that kept us cool enough to stay out Friday and Saturday to celebrate pride with y’all!
We saw our products everywhere, and our goal of introducing even more members of the local community to the BLoFISH family was a success! We go to a lot of Pride events, it’s kind of how we got our start. But the Kentuckiana Pride Parade and Festival is always one of the best. Seeing people supporting the LGBTQ+ community right here in our hometown is a testament to the awesome support we have in our backyard.
People from Louisville and our surrounding communities were able to meet, celebrate, and be proud together. Our goal is to bring together as many people as possible for real change, and we’re glad to have been able to do that this weekend.
If you missed your chance to get a Louisville Pride tank at Pride, we still have some for sale at our storefront on Market Street!
The weekend was full of fun, connections, great sales, and a little sweat, and we can’t wait to do it all again next year!
If you’ve not picked up something from our exclusive Pride 18 line, you only have a few more days to get your hands on it! We’re launching a new exclusive shirt on July 1, so make sure to grab your Pride 18 gear while you can. Thanks so much to everyone who joined us at Pride, whether it was in Louisville, Pensacola, or by repping ALL4ALL at another city’s Pride events.
As always, we love seeing pictures of you rocking our gear! Tag us on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter so we can see your beautiful faces - and use the hashtag #ALL4ALL.
(We’d like to begin by including a Content Warning for mentions of sexual assault throughout this blog. Take care of yourselves and read with caution, friends.)
It's been a long, stressful, and emotion-filled week. The Kavanaugh hearings have, for many - especially survivors of sexual assault - been emotionally exhausting. The current news cycle is triggering for many survivors. Because of this, RAINN's hotline has been overflowing with calls to a point they can’t keep up, Twitter has been overflowing with both support and contempt for Dr. Ford, and most of our conversations here at BLōFISH have centered around the news cycle and how we can help.
Sarah wanted a career that allowed her to see the world but also let her be a part of something bigger than herself. This led her to the military. She chose this path with a goal to, “become something more.” Along with serving our country, Sarah explained that her reason behind joining the Maven program was “to inspire others to be themselves and not be afraid to show who they are.”
