History Highlight: Maya Angelou

Today is National Black Poetry Day and we wanted to pay tribute to the great Maya Angelou. Maya Angelou was a great author, poet, historian, songwriter, playwright, dancer, stage and screen producer, director, performer, singer, and civil rights activist. 

We are so inspired by this wonderful lady, we even named one of our bracelets after her! Our Maya Bracelet is engraved with the words "be brave" to consistently remind us that hard times will come but we must always be brave. View it here

One of our personal favorite poems here at Bravelets is from "Still I Rise". Read below:

How To Be An Ally When Someone Comes Out To You


Coming out is a very sensitive, emotional process for anyone who identifies as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or pansexual. It is important to allow them the space to express their thoughts to you, on their own time. Coming out is a stressful situation because as happy and exciting as it can be for some, there are clouded thoughts and risk of discrimination, rejection, harassment, and possible violence.
