June is Pride Month. Around the world, people gather at pride parades, march for equality and proudly wave rainbow flags as a symbol of peace, diversity and the LGBT community. The LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) acronym has expanded over time to LGBTQIA. Queer, an umbrella term for non-straight. Intersex, those whose gender is not defined. And Asexual, for those who don’t experience sexual attraction. It’s not our responsibility to always understand other people’s preferences, identity, or lifestyle but it is our responsibility to be accepting and create a safe space for inclusion.
Kong Fit Club is for everyone which is why this month’s theme is ONE LOVE. We are proud to embrace the diversity of our tight-knit community because inclusion starts with acceptance and finding common ground. Despite our differences, our dedication to change is what binds us. Sweat has no gender or sexual orientation. Whether you’re LGBTQ or I or A or straight or other, you can sweat with us. I truly believe that progress cannot be made unless we can stand in the same space and work together in the most literal sense. If we can sweat together, we can live beside each other and understand that no matter who you are or who you love, we are all living, breathing human beings aspiring to be better.
All three June KFCs invite you to come as you are. I am also super excited for our first digital challenge. While the internet can be a dark space, let’s flood it with our light and everyday fight.
