Pride All Year Long: A Conversation with Drag & Trans Icon Peppermint, from "RuPaul's Drag Race"

I'm writing this on July 1st which means that "PRIDE Month" is officially over. Soon, if not already, we will see the mass exodus of rainbow logos from most companies' websites and social media accounts, put back into the closet (sort of speak) until next year.

Here at PowerToFly, we don't believe that our LGBTQIA+ community should just be celebrated for thirty days but all year long. That's why we are launching a new conversation series entitled, you guessed it, Pride All Year Long. Each month, we'll be hosting an intimate fireside chat with an LGBTQIA+ newsmaker, discussing their life, career and what's next for the community.

We are kicking off our Pride All Year Long series on July 8th at 3:30 PM ET with a truly AMAZING guest: The drag and trans icon (and RuPaul's Drag Race veteran) Peppermint.

RSVP TO MEET PEPPERMINT. IT'S FREE!


Peppermint is a trailblazing actress, singer, reality star, activist, and longtime key figure in queer nightlife. Peppermint has been nominated for a 2021 GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Music Artist and, in 2018, was honored at Conde Nast's first annual "Queeroes" awards, earned her place on Variety's prestigious "New Power of New York" list, and was named one of Out magazine's "OUT100" portfolio of the most influential LGBTQ people of the year.

Joining Peppermint in conversation will be Joey Nolfi, a writer and multimedia host at Entertainment Weekly. Based in both New York City and Pittsburgh, Joey leads the publication's WOWIE Award-winning, Webby Award-nominated RuPaul's Drag Race coverage and is the host of EW's BINGE podcast.

We want this conversation to be as interactive as possible so Peppermint and Joey are looking forward to receiving your questions in advance when you register or live on July 8th from 3:30 PM ET to 4:30 PM ET.

Don't forget to register and we hope to see you there!

How These Companies Are Celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

According to a recent study, anti-Asian hate crimes have risen 150% since the pandemic started. But these acts of violence are not new — they are part of a much larger history of anti-Asian racism and violence in the U.S.

That makes celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month (which was named a month-long celebration in May by Congress in 1992 "to coincide with two important milestones in Asian/Pacific American history: the arrival in the United States of the first Japanese immigrants on May 7, 1843 and contributions of Chinese workers to the building of the transcontinental railroad, completed May 10, 1869") this year all the more important.

How to Scale: 3 Tips from VTS’s Jess Scott on How to Go from 200 to 1,000 Employees

Remember when, in movies from the late 1990s, characters who were looking for a job would leaf through a newspaper's classified section to see who was hiring?

Jess Scott has been running HR teams and talent acquisition teams since then. "You would circle in red pen the job they're going to go apply for. That's how you applied!" she says, laughing. "Sending emails, especially with attachments, was still a very new thing."
