🍉 Pride for Palestine 🏳️‍🌈

Pride for Palestine

I don't think it's just me. This year, Pride month feels different.

I've been recovering from a hysterectomy for the last three weeks, which is why you haven't heard from me in a while (more on that in next week's letter). But I couldn't let Pride Month start without sending you a message.

For Pride in previous years, I have held a big, celebratory site-wide sale on my trans voice courses, but this year, it just doesn't feel right to celebrate in this way.

You already know about the violence and ongoing genocide in Palestine, and in case it wasn't clear, I am 100% pro-Palestine.

What I've decided to do for Pride this year instead of my usual sale is a promotion I'm calling:

Pride for Palestine

Basically, if you donate to any fundraiser supporting Palestinian people, I will offer you a discount on the course of your choosing that is equivalent to your donation.

That means that if your donation is the same amount as the price of a course, you get that course for free!

All you have to do is donate during Pride month and email [email protected] a screenshot of your receipt and which course you would like to apply the discount to.

If you already have all the courses you want but still want to participate, you can send proof of your donation, and I will match your donation up to $2000 in total.

Not sure where to donate? Operation Olive Branch has created a huge spreadsheet with fundraisers directly supporting Palestinians. Click here to access that spreadsheet.

I've written out some terms and conditions for this promotion that you can check out here, but you can also reply to this email if you have any questions.

I know how easy it is to feel helpless when so many people are suffering, but every share, every call to your representative, and every donation helps.

Peace, love, and solidarity 🍉
