At Pride Palace, our mission is simple: to create apparel that makes all people feel loved, accepted, and valued. We believe that everyone deserves to feel comfortable and confident in their own skin, no matter their gender, sexuality, or romantic orientation. That's why we're so proud to announce that for this month's donation, we've chosen to support AUREA, a non-profit organization that works to assist in the growth of the aromantic community and advocate for its interests through education and recognition.

Aromanticism is a romantic orientation in which an individual experiences little to no romantic attraction towards others. It's a lesser-known orientation that is often misunderstood or overlooked, which is why organizations like AUREA are so important. AUREA is dedicated to assembling information about aromanticism, including vocabulary, research, online resources, links to in-person groups, and printable educational materials. They aim to be a contact point for researchers and media looking to explore the aromantic experience and create a more accepting world for aromantic individuals.

As a company that values inclusivity and diversity, we at Pride Palace feel it's important to support organizations that are working to uplift marginalized communities. That's why we're thrilled to donate a portion of our profits to AUREA this month. Their work is crucial in helping to educate the world about aromanticism and provide resources for aromantic individuals to find community and support.

We believe that everyone deserves to feel seen, heard, and loved, no matter their romantic orientation. Aromantic individuals often face a unique set of challenges and we want to do our part in creating a world that is more accepting and inclusive of all people. By supporting organizations like AUREA, we can make a real difference in the lives of those who identify as aromantic.

We encourage you to learn more about AUREA here and the important work they're doing for the aromantic community.
