Did you Know that, circa this week, June 19th has become a federal holiday known as Juneteenth?
This holiday was named in honor of June 19th, 1865--the day that enslaved persons were finally freed in Texas (months after the Civil War has ended).
This month we'd like you to meet Aaron Philip, a generation Z fashion model who identifies as transgender and black--she also experiences cerebral palsy.
Aaron is making her dreams come true working for a major modeling agency. She's also appeared on Teen Vogue's "21 Under 21." Wow!
We'd also like to say Happy Pride to our customers and staff who identify as part of the LGBTQ+ community. We celebrate you!
