When Jodie from Support LGBTQ+ Businesses came to me with her idea for queerys and asked if I would like to be involved, I jumped at the chance with no hesitation, because it is so important to me as an ally, running a business, for couples to know that I am fully inclusive and a safe and welcoming business.
I was devastated to hear that couples, when looking for suppliers in the wedding industry, are not only underrepresented, they are scared and hesitant to approach them for the fear of being judged or rejected for who they are, for what should be an easy and fun experience, leading up to one of the happiest days of their lives. And I want that to change.
I want change so that one day it won’t be about a gay couple getting married it will just be about a couple getting married for love and nothing else.
I believe being a part of queerys, we can make that change together, united.
