HAPPY PRIDE 2024, my fellow gifted thrifters and thrifty gifters!  I’ve been a guest blogger here for three years!  Time does indeed fly when you’re having fun.    

Yes, it’s June – the first month of Summer, Iyyar and Sivvan of 5784, Pride Month!  Month of the sixth birthday of my Westminster Flabby fat liberation project, Give Out Day, Shavuot, Juneteenth, Fathers Day, the Summer/Estival Solstice / MidSummer, the anniversary of the Stonewall Riots and my 48th birthday!

And as you probably know, this year, there’s more pride and prejudice than ever.  There’s a reason many of my fellow queer and trans people also call this Wrath Month.  Please do what you can to educate, advocate, and celebrate.   

Right now, let’s share some queer joy by looking at some of the recent rainbow items on Goodwill of Greater Washington’s ShopGoodwill.com site – a dress (which I’d wear), a flannel (which my spouse would), shoes (the first pair of which I can totally see my editor in), jewelry (I got my rainbow engagement ring at Shop Goodwill), and a backpack (there’s a famous drag queen named Jan Sport), oh my!

As always, there were also rainbow items during my visits to the Goodwill here in Gaithersburg this Spring – an amazing upcycled dress, hat and bag set, a dressy duster, a stained glass-like top, and pajama pants.  

Nu, speaking of in-person Goodwill thrifting?  I’ll be talking about my latest trips here next month!  In the meantime, may you have a just and jubilant June.
