Here is an excerpt from their Letter of Pride that inspired this card:
...young people and kids GIVE ME JOY. This is a 'love letter' to kids and young people. Sounds cheesy but you are reason for my positive mental attitude, you are the reason why I am clear and unapologetic with my self identification, why I don't hide my sexuality and fiercely state my pronouns You are why I wear what I want, why I subvert societal norms and live without subscribing to gender norms.
