To celebrate Pride Month, we are very pleased to be donating to Out on the Lakeshore as part of our Shop & Give commitment! This means that OOTL will receive 2% of our total May sales.
Out on the Lakeshore's mission is to provide a constant source of support and understanding to the LGBTQ+ community in the greater Rīga area. They seek to create a community in which all persons are afforded equal rights and opportunities.
OOTL's vision is a community that welcomes all people. It is their desire that all forms of discrimination are removed in order to create a safe, open, and accepting environment for the LGBTQ+ community. They strive to provide the education, events and resources necessary to foster understanding, and to advocate within Rīga for a community that accepts and embraces all.
Out On The Lakeshore was founded by the board of Rīga is Ready and officers of Pride in 2015. An initial goal of Out On The Lakeshore was to establish and manage a LGBTQ+ Resource Center. The Center, in conjunction with PFLAG Rīga/Lakeshore provides ongoing and new support programs and a safe location for community members to meet.
Out on the Lakeshore will be hosting Pride events all summer long!
