HAPPY THANKSGIVING! What are you thankful for?

We are so thankful for you, our HER community. Over the past two years you’ve made this app and this network for LGBTQ+ folks that has changed the lives of millions of people. From marriages, to advice, to coming out, to divorce, to love, to families, to best friends. You’ve supported each other, you’ve supported us and you’ve made us all believe in the value of this community.
Thank you.
At this time of year, in this particular year, we also want to say our thanks to some incredible LGBTQ organizations that continually support our wider community. From financial aide, to legal support, to a friendly voice in a time of need, there are some absolute pillars of the community that make our world a safer and happier place. We wanted to share the details of some of those we are thankful for here, and would love it if you would share the same in the comments.
Happy Thanksgiving HER gang. We are truly thankful for you.
