Atlanta’s Diverse & Accepting Salon

June is not just about the onset of summer; it marks a season of celebration and pride for the LGBTQ+ community. 

Pride Month is dedicated to honoring the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in Manhattan—a pivotal event that sparked the modern movement for LGBTQ+ rights in the United States and beyond. 

At Urban Evolution Salon, we are committed to celebrating this vibrant history by fostering an environment of diversity and inclusion. 

We believe that beauty shines brightest when it’s diverse and personalized, and this month, we invite everyone to celebrate the beauty of being their true selves with us.

Our Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

At UES, we embrace beauty as an incredibly personal and diverse expression. 

We understand that a salon is more than just a place to get your hair done; it’s a sanctuary where you should feel safe to express your identity and style without fear of judgment. 

That’s why we are dedicated to maintaining a welcoming environment for all our clients, regardless of how they identify.

This commitment is reflected in our practices and policies, ensuring that our team is skilled in beauty techniques and understanding and celebrating every client’s unique journey.

Celebrating Pride at Urban Evolution

During Pride Month, Urban Evolution Salon goes all out to celebrate and support the LGBTQ+ community. 

 Whether you’re looking to make a bold statement or show your support, we invite you to join us in a celebration that promises creativity and community.

One amazing guest shared this in a post after visiting us.

“Today was the first time since I have come out as #trans that I have gotten my hair done. The pure euphoria I have right now!! Thank you Hannah and Cole at Urban Evolution Salon for the great job and wonderful time.”


Why Do We Celebrate Pride?

Pride Month is more than parades and celebrations; it’s a vital reminder of the LGBTQ+ community’s ongoing struggle for equal rights and acceptance. 

The roots of Pride go back to the early morning hours of June 28, 1969, when the Stonewall Inn, a gay club in New York City, was raided by police. 

This event sparked a series of riots and protests led by courageous members of the gay community, catalyzing the modern LGBTQ+ rights movement. 

Understanding this history is crucial to recognizing the importance of Pride Month and the continuous efforts needed to achieve true equality.

Pride is important because someone tonight believes they are better off dead than being themselves.”

For those looking to dive deeper or get involved, we recommend exploring resources provided by organizations like the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), GLAAD, and the Trevor Project, which also offer opportunities for advocacy and support.

We Support LGBTQ+ Rights Year-Round

Our commitment to the LGBTQ+ community extends beyond June. We continually strive to support and advocate for LGBTQ+ rights. Experience the inclusive environment we’re proud of at UES.
