LGBTQ+ people face continuous discrimination in their personal lives, workplace and other social settings. Some resort to reclusive lifestyles to avoid the pain and trauma; most push through the agony of social rejection while others commit suicide. LGBTQ+ are also victims of brutal hate crimes sometimes resulting in death.  Experiencing constant discrimination can have detrimental effects on the psyche of a LGBTQ+ person affecting their financial, mental and physical well being.  I Am Me Inc was created to combat these issues.

Remember Stonewall

The Stonewall riots were a series of spontaneous demonstrations by members of the gay community in response to a police raid that began in the early morning hours of June 28, 1969, at the Stonewall Inn in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of New York City, New York, United States of America. 

Stonewall sparked the fight for civil rights for LGBTQ+ and the reason why we celebrate pride!!
