We've created something great - a community that attracts people from all different backgrounds, from all over the world. It's truly an incredible sight to see everyone come together and express their love and passion for the same thing - Disney. Throughout my time as a leader in this community, I've been fortunate enough to meet so many incredible people from all around the world. People that, without a community like Palace, wouldn't have any idea where to turn to really be who they are. We have all of you to thank for creating such a warm, welcoming community especially for those that wouldn't have an environment like that without us.
At Palace, we embrace diversity and celebrate differences. Everyone is different, and these differences are what make you unique. We're committed to never putting anyone down for their opinions, even if they are different from our own. We encourage you to find your own way in life and we will 100% be here to support you, so long that you're not hurting yourself or others in the process.
As a company, we believe in your freedom to express your true self. We want you to be the best version of you that you can be and we will always be behind you cheering you on every step of the way. No matter what is going on in your personal life, please know that you will always have a place to let your personality shine bright here with us, and you will never be put down for being who you are or for believing in what you believe in.
We ask that you take these values that we have, and share them with each other while you are a part of our community. These values are what make the Palace Community an amazing community to be a part of. Take the differences that you have with each other and understand that those differences aren't the sole definition of a person. Embrace the differences we have with one another and highlight the positives.
We understand that not everyone will get along with each other, and that sometimes the differences we have with one another are more than we can handle, and that's completely understandable. When faced with situations like this, we ask that instead of attacking each other, just take those differences and understand not everyone will feel the same way that you do, and move past it. Respect is so important, and as long as you're respectful of each other, Palace will continue to be a safe and inclusive environment for us all to enjoy together.
We're so excited to participate in Pride Month again this year, starting June 1st, we'll be jam-packed with events, cosmetics, and all around pride! We can't wait for you to see what we have in store, and remember, let your flame burn bright!
