Our Next Generation

    Welcome to Pride month where we celebrate each individual who identifies with a group within the LGBTQIA+ community — whether you are Gay, Bi, Queer, somewhere in-between, all around, or still questioning. As a gay couple, we understand the importance of having the support of our families and chosen families to help us see the good in life and share the hope we have for future generations.

     This month, it is good to shine the light on us as queer people, but we would like to specifically direct attention to those who do not have the support we had growing up or continue to have from our close friends and family. Since starting WalStreet Candles, we have always aimed at giving back to those that need it most in our community. The Trevor Project is where our hearts landed.

     The Trevor Project provides the support that some young adults and teenagers need when life becomes too unbearable because of social or family pressures within their lives while also trying to understand their own identities. This organization aims to be a direct line of help for those who need mental stability.

"Founded in 1998, The Trevor Project is the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer & questioning (LGBTQ) young people under 25."

     This month we want to continue and support The Trevor Project. 10% of every purchase will be donated to this organization and if you would like to find more information about The Trevor Project, you can visit them at TheTrevorProject.org
