Los Angeles, CA – JUNE 14, 2021 – This Pride month, JUNE, Los Angeles-based Menstrual Care company, will be matching every donation made at checkout to True Colors United, an organization dedicated to solving homeslessness for LGBTQ+ youth. Supporting the community should go beyond just the month of June, however, and for this company, Pride is very much embedded in their DNA. From the very beginning, JUNE has been about providing accessible and sustainable menstrual care products for all menstruators, striving to help individuals with healthcare issues, like overcoming price and gender barriers.
According to JUNE, pride is more than just celebrating the community, it is recognizing the very real struggles that have been fought and overcome, and the struggles that are still present today. It is fighting for more diversity, it is fighting for better accessibility for disabled LGBTQ+ folks, it is fighting against anti-trans legislation, and, of course, it is fighting for accessible healthcare, including menstrual care. JUNE’s soon-to-be-released firmer period cup is a testament to their fundamental message: high quality and accessible menstrual care is not a luxury, it is a right.
“When I founded JUNE, it was my goal to make Menstrual care accessible to as many people as possible,” said Hedi Rappard, Founder of JUNE. “Access to Menstrual care is a fundamental right, and that doesn’t stop with cis gender women – JUNE has made a commitment to the LGBT+ community to ensure they have access to quality menstrual care and to make space for their unique journey with menstruation.”
Supporting Pride and the LGBTQ+ community goes further than just matching donations for JUNE, as is echoed by Skylar Swift Kardon, Campaign Director for JUNE’s Pride campaign. After the one year anniversary of Skylar’s modeling for JUNE as a visibly trans menstruation model, and after the one year anniversary of Pride during the pandemic, Skylar and JUNE want to show their full commitment to this support, from using more inclusive language across the board, committing to gender diverse visibility, and so much more. The alternative to inclusion is exclusion, and that goes strictly against JUNE’s fundamental pillars.
Selling high-quality and sustainable menstrual cups at-cost to make sure proper menstrual care is accessible to all menstruators is JUNE’s foundation. JUNE has committed to providing products with no pink tax and no exclusionary overtly-feminine marketing – because accessible menstrual care is a right for everyone.
JUNE’s commitment to supporting the LGBTQ+ community happens year-round, and this month, you can help stand in solidarity as JUNE matches your donations at checkout. Proceeds go to True Colors United and the struggle to solve homelessness for LGBTQ+ youth.
