This month’s editions of #CBBxManiMonday will have some extra special meaning as our theme for the month of June will be “Allyship” in honour of Pride and Indigenous History month. I have talked a little bit about my goals in last week’s Instagram stories including finishing my Indigenous Canada course, reading more about residential schools and researching local charities who support both LGBTQ+ and Indigenous causes. This is not just a one month thing. This is a way of life that I opened myself up to last year and I can honestly say that when it comes to consumption and beauty, I am much more mindful of where my money goes and making the time to learn about uncomfortable topics that I feel I will never know enough about which is a good thing because it keeps me wanting to know more.

With each #CBBxManiMonday post this month, I will be sharing resources and charities that have both been helpful and resonated with me. For this post, I will be donating to the Vancouver-based WISH Drop-In Centre. WISH works closely with other with women-serving organizations in the Downtown Eastside, but specifically focuses on all self-identified women working in the sex trade by providing access to a safe place to stay, hot meals, health care access, toiletries, feminine hygiene products and a community of other women. I made sure WISH also supported all trans women as I was made aware that some shelters do not. There is also a program in place for Indigenous women – the Aboriginal Health and Safety Program – that helps those in the sex trade reclaim their culture through sisterhood, creative crafts and activities and learning about Indigenous traditions.
