ANDALE IS PRO SKATE, ANTI HATE
Pride Month in the United States just ended, but that doesn’t mean support for LGBTQ individuals is going anywhere. Much to its credit, the world of skateboarding has always been a little more open than some other places. It has long been an avenue welcoming to outsiders. That makes skating a great way to promote equality across the world. Andale is making itself a vocal part of this, as seen in their “No Hate; We Skate” video.
The video is promoting equality, specifically when it comes to LGBTQ matters. However, things don’t end there. Andale has been donating a portion of their proceeds to the Los Angeles LGBT Center, but right now on top of that, they are donating to organizations related to the Black Lives Matter movement as well. Just because equality is pretty common in skating, though there is still room for improvement, doesn’t mean we can get complacent. Watch the video, and consider donating yourself if you can afford it.
