Industry Allies

Inclusivity is important! That is why I've compiled a categorized list of
businesses and wedding vendors to assist anyone looking for
access to services that are not always available to them.

The following vendors are Queer-affirming, active allies that regularly speak up and/or educate their followers about antiracism and allyship. This list is updated quarterly and the following vendors have agreed with and to uphold the following:


 1.  As an Industry Ally, we define antiracists as "people who are actively seeking not only to raise their consciousness about race and racism, but also to take action when they see racial power inequities in everyday life."

2. We agree to use our social media platforms to be better antiracists by:
a) raising our and our followers' consciousness about race and racism by sharing educational content in our stories, posts, and highlight button.
AND
b) speaking up and taking action when we see racial power inequities occuring within the Lancaster Wedding Industry

3.  As an Industry Ally, we believe people of all genders and sexual orientations have the right to marry another person of any gender and sexual orientation that they love.

4. We agree to use our social media platforms to be better allies to the Queer community by:
a) raising our and our followers' consciousness about homophobia and transphobia by sharing educational content in our stories, posts, and highlight button
AND
b) speaking up and taking action when we see homophobic and/or transphobic situations within the Lancaster Wedding Industry. 

5. We agree to be held accountable for our words and actions and understand that failing to uphold the statements outlined in this agreement will result in our removal from the Industry Allies directory.
