Buy Silicone Bracelets for Pride Month
June is Pride Month, and what better way to celebrate than by buying Pride silicone bracelets for your loved ones from Enso Rings? These high-quality silicone bracelets emblazoned with the colors of the Pride flag are the perfect accessory to wear to Pride events all month long. Plus, they go with everything!
Origin of Pride Month
Pride Month is held in June to commemorate the 1969 Stonewall Uprising (also known as the Stonewall Riots) in Manhattan, which marked a turning point for gay rights.
In the 1960s, it was common for police and others to harass gays and lesbians, and in many states, gay sex was even a crime. On June 28, 1969, police raided a gay bar in Greenwich Village, hauling out and arresting employees and customers and setting off six days of rioting by those who were tired of the continued torment of the LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer) community.
Since then, gay rights have come a long way, but it’s important to remember the way things used to be and how far we have come.
The year after the Stonewall Riots, New York held its first Pride March. Since then, the LGBTQ movement has only grown and includes parades, parties, fundraisers, festivals, balls, fairs, conventions, shows and more.
Awareness and Support Can Help
Although LGBTQ rights have progressed in the last 50-plus years, the truth is that LGBTQ people are still discriminated against and even in danger in many parts of the country.
At work, LGBTQ people are often harassed, passed up for promotions, paid less, and reprimanded and fired more often. Many LGBTQ people hide their relationships for fear of retaliation at work. It was only 10 years ago that President Barack Obama put an end to “don’t ask, don’t tell” in the military. Transgender people still face issues receiving health care.
Sometimes LGBTQ people must deal with harassment from their own family members. Nearly half of LGBTQ people report that they suffer mental anguish due to how others treat them for being LGBTQ.
Buying and wearing or gifting Enso Rings Pride silicone bracelets shows that you support the LGBTQ community, and it helps further acceptance and fair treatment.
Enso Rings Pride Bracelets
The colors of our Pride silicone bracelets are the colors of the rainbow to symbolize how everyone is different, but still beautiful. Like the Cyndi Lauper song, True Colors, says, “Your true colors are beautiful, like a rainbow.” In some representations of the Pride flag, symbolic words are emblazoned over the colors: life, healing, sunlight, nature, serendipity and spirit. Some other versions include magic, sexuality, diversity and inclusivity as well.
Our silicone bracelet makers created our Pride bracelet colors to transition gradually from one to the next rather than depicting them as bold stripes with hard edges. This shows how sexuality — and humanity — are fluid and dynamic. They don’t conform to rigid expectations. Even within the Pride colors, there are infinite variations, blends and combinations.
Our Pride silicone bracelets come in small, medium, large and extra large. However, the Enso Rings clasp allows you to put on and take off the bracelet without having to slide it over your hand. This feature makes Enso Rings’ silicone bracelets so much more comfortable than other bracelets, especially for people with large hands or knuckles. You no longer have to get a bracelet in a giant size to ensure it slides over your hand.
The better fit means more comfort during the day, whether you’re writing, typing or doing another kind of work that a bracelet could interfere with.
Moreover, because our bracelets are made of soft silicone rather than metal, they feel better against your skin. They also make less noise on a desktop, which is great in a busy office, at school or anywhere where others are trying to pay attention and concentrate.
If you’re part of the LGBTQ community, buy an Enso Rings Pride silicone bracelet for yourself to help you remember to always feel proud of who you are and to never accept disrespect from another. If you’re in a relationship, get a set of Pride couples silicone bracelets. And buy them for your LGBTQ friends as well so you can all wear them as a group to Pride events to show your solidarity.
Buy Pride silicone bracelets for your mom, dad, grandparents and siblings, so they can show their support for you. If their friends ask them about their Pride silicone bracelets, they can tell them where they got theirs and help spread the word.
Enso Rings Donating Portion of Sales to Encircle
Encircle is a nonprofit in Utah that provides a safe space for LGBTQ youth to come and participate in fun programs, meet other queer people and get affordable therapy, if desired.
Encircle’s founder started Encircle homes in Salt Lake City and has since opened homes in Provo and St. George. The organization has plans to continue opening more homes in Utah and eventually throughout the nation. The existence of these safe spaces is critical to the health and well-being of all our LGBTQ youth. Parents and friends are welcome to visit as well.
Enso Rings is donating $2 from the sale of all Pride silicone bracelets to Encircle Homes in an effort to help their expansion so that they can provide more services to more people.
