On Human Rights & the 2018 Midterm Elections
In the years following the election of Donald Trump, the rise of anti LGBTQ+ legislation and a regressive mindset has become the new normal in our government. In 2017 alone, there were 129 pieces of legislation that took away some of the everyday civil liberties that our family and friends rely on to stay safe. This has meant a resurgence of discriminatory “bathroom bills” and broad prejudicial treatment of queer families in government spaces. Fortunately, tomorrow, Tuesday, November 6 is an opportunity to vote for the freedoms we all deserve.
Tomorrow's Midterm elections have the ability to change the weight of conservative power in Congress. Voting on Tuesday means electing representatives that are not only standing up to these antiquated and dangerous bills, but will take steps to vote for better legislation in the future.

Tuesday isn't just about voting for trans, gender non-conforming, and intersex rights, it’s about voting for human rights. Not only will we be voting tomorrow, but we'll be passing along a 20% discount to all our friends who get out and vote! DM us with evidence that you voted and we'll share a code with you.
We will be donating all profits made today (11.04.2018) through November 7th to G.L.I.T.S. @glits_inc.
