June is Pride Month in North America and many places worldwide, and it’s a time to celebrate the progress the LGBTQ community has made in being treated with fairness and dignity. It’s a time to honor the courageous people who have been instrumental in that progress throughout the decades.
It’s also a time to remind each other that the fight for equality is ongoing and that we all have a role to play in helping ensure LGBTQ people everywhere can live openly, authentically, and proudly, and be treated equitably—not just 30 days out of the year, but all year round.
This month, Minoh has worked with multiple different companies on their pride projects in showing their solidarity with the LBGTQ+ community. Projects small and large, many are showing their support in different ways, and we are always happy to lend a hand.
Quadreal Planter Boxes
QuadReal Property Group is a global real estate investment, operating, and development company headquartered in Vancouver, BC. However, They happen to manage the Commerce Court building in Toronto.
In late May, we were asked to apply a first surface, spot-on vinyl to 17 Planters outside of the building as well as a full-color pride flag on translucent removable vinyl to cover their reception desk.
These decals remained vibrant and intact all month long, letting Commerce Court show their pride without trouble. And then when it came to removal, our team was able to remove with ease due to the material we used. A strong, yet removable, vinyl that is effective and can be removed easily if done the right way.
Pride Lawn Signs
Upright Pride had a campaign where they would sell “Proud” lawn signs to people who were interested, and then they would donate 50% of the earnings to Friends Of Ruby. Friends of Ruby is a Mental Health Service Organization who provides 2SLGBTQIA+ youth with a supportive community, drop-in services & programming, mental health counseling, case management, and housing.
We were so happy to have Upright Pride reach out to us for their manufacturing needs and we are hoping to manufacture these wonderful lawn signs annually for them.
