It is the 30th year of Pride celebrations in Calgary, and RICK RACK is celebrating!
At RICK RACK we too believe in resiliency, community, & love - and as allies of the LGBTQA2S+ community we want to show our support with a pride-themed "Wear Your Pride" fundraiser! We will be donating 100% of the net profits from our fundraiser to the Calgary Queer Arts Society, an amazing organization that exists to give voice to queer people and their stories. They produce one of Canada’s largest LGBTQA2S+ film festivals: The Fairy Tales Queer Film Festivals, operate year-round arts and education programming, youth programming, and more.
Here are two ways that you can Wear Your Pride:
1. Purchase one of our DIY Pride Mask Kits online or in-store, while supplies last. Each kit contains one piece of pride flag striped fabric, one piece of white cotton lawn for lining, and one meter of 3mm elastic so that you can get crafty and sew your own pride mask - enough to sew one reusable face mask. How nifty is that?
2. Purchase some of our 100% woven cotton Pride Flag Fabric off-the-bolt, while supplies last. We have two variations of pride fabric and, due to limited supply, we are limiting purchases to two meters per person so that as many cool cats as possible have access to this swell sewing supply!
Thank you in advance to everyone who purchases a mask kit or fabric from our fundraiser - your support will directly contribute to the betterment of Calgary as a safe and inclusive city while supporting our LGBTQA2S+ community. High fives!
