GritCycle Pride Features

To get a sense of how our Grit family is feeling about Pride, we reached out to our team members to share with us what Pride means to them. Here’s what some of them had to say:


“For me, Pride Month is a powerful reminder of the incredible freedom to love who I love and marry the love of my life. It’s about celebrating equality and the recognition of our relationships. This hard-won freedom, fought for by so many brave souls before us, allows me to live openly and authentically. Pride Month is deeply personal to me—it’s a time to honor our love, celebrate our progress, and continue the fight for justice and acceptance with pride and joy.” -Andrew Vo


“Pride month is a time of celebration!  For years, I was always ashamed of the things that made me different from others which makes me sad because those same things have now become the best parts of me!  My superpower!  I am grateful for the LGBTQ+ community leaders and voices from the past who have paved the way for me to even be here and embrace my differences today.  It’s a time to reflect and learn from the past while celebrating all that I am with the people I love!” – Pele Ili


“To me, pride means being your authentic self. Learning how to show the world your true colors, and speaking up for people who can’t find their voice. We are all in this together, and I think we forget that, sometimes. That’s what the LGBTQ+ community is for. Pride is about standing together, united, and lifting each other up. Being there for each other.” – Patrick Leahy
