I have been struggling a bit while knitting these socks. Citizens of my country are fighting back against centuries of racial injustice and I’m sitting at home knitting rainbows. I’ve seen some calls that everything Pride should be canceled to center our focus on communities of color right now. I don’t disagree, but it is especially hard during a year where most of Pride has been canceled due to a global pandemic. There’s a good suggestion over at mildlygranola to make a donation for each pair of Pride socks made this month. I will be donating up front to the Black Lives Matter DC legal support fund and again at the end of the month if I am able, because what is happening in DC is personal to me. It also seems like one extremely small way I can recognize the struggles and strides of the LGBTQ+ community while honoring the POC who made the movement possible.
