The Faherty community — our team members, customers, and more — define who we are. This month, we wanted to shine a spotlight on a few of our LGBTQIA+ team members across the country.

What does Pride mean to you?
To me, Pride means more than just partying in the streets. It means protesting against all forces for our rights to exist with dignity and respect. It’s a reminder that we never ask for our rights, we take them.
What do you wish someone had told you when you were younger?
No matter how much the world will make you conform to it, do your best to make the world conform to you.
What does it mean to you to be a part of the Faherty community?
It means getting to work with people who are always willing to learn something new and open to changing for the better!
Who inspires you?
Indya Moore is such an inspiration to me. They live their life authentically and do not mince words when it comes to transgender and non-binary rights and acceptance. They are truly a fearless individual!
What does authenticity mean to you?
It means living my true self, and breaking down gender norms and people’s ideas of masculinity and femininity!
