Celebrating & Supporting LGBTQ+ Pride Month 2022 (and Pride 365 days a year)

Written by: Lauren Buzbee

Only Natural Pet is proud to celebrate and support our LGBTQ+ team members, customers, and community. Not only during Pride Month but 365 days a year.

Everyone is worthy of unconditional love. That’s why we strive to create an inclusive environment for our associates where everyone feels like they truly belong. We participate in an Associate Resource Group called Pride At Work (P.A.W)., a diversity and inclusion initiative for our LGBTQ+ associates and allies. Pride At Work invites all associates to participate. Whether they’re a straight ally, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or identify in any other way, they belong.

Only Natural Pet values and supports organizations that unite our communities and protect the rights of all people. One organization that we proudly support is Out Boulder County, which facilitates connection, advocacy, education, research and programs to ensure LGBTQ+ people and communities thrive in Boulder County and beyond. It’s located here in the Boulder, Colorado area where our offices are located.

The primary event that Out Boulder County organizes is Boulder County Pride. We’re happy to be a primary sponsor for a majority of the events that happen throughout the month. From Rainbows Over Boulder County, where our retail stores, distribution center, and headquarter office display rainbow flags to show that our Boulder community is welcoming to people identifying as LGBTQ+. To Boulder Pride Festival, where we’ll have a booth doing giveaways and supporting our community. We’re glad to participate in local outreach like this.
