The Black Lives Matter Movement is something that I hold very close to my heart. 

The movement is important to me and Brain Drain Co. as a company because I share the same values as the people protesting in United States and Australia alike at the moment. 

As a queer woman living in Australia, I recognise where PRIDE itself started. Pride began as a riot, led by Marsha P. Johnson, a black trans woman, at Stonewall in the late 1960's. 

I'm well aware that I remained quiet on the Brain Drain Co. socials when the #BLM movement was gaining the most momentum at the time, however, it was not due to a lack of care towards the movement. 

A portion of proceeds made from sales for the remainder of June 2020, and through to the end of July 2020 will go towards Black Rainbow
