Why join this team you ask? Why support this cause? Well if the free breast cancer exams, HIV testing, sweet performances and giveaways aren't enough, let me give you a reason or two. This walk is about standing up for gender equality, self-expression, human sexuality (aka nature), self-love and acceptance, and purging all forms of shame and judgement fall away. This walk provides an all inclusive, empowering environment for all. No more sexual violence. No more victim blaming. NO MORE DEROGATORY LABELS. NO MORE GENDER INEQUALITY. It's time to start a conversation and set the tone for the generations behind us. The generations of girls and boys who will no longer be taught that a vagina loses value when it's driven off the lot and that boys are the only ones who are allowed to be sexual beings. It's fucking 2016 everyone. If you're going to hand your sons condoms and tell him to be safe, you better do the same thing for your daughters. Let's change some perceptions and instill new values in the generations to come.
