My family has always taken an interest in my Modern Christmas Tree business. Especially my nephew Tate who told me several years ago at the age of 7, “You should make a rainbow Christmas tree!”. I smiled and praised him for the idea, filing it away under “tree ideas”. As I thought more about the Rainbow Christmas Tree, it became clear, “this is a great idea!”. The tree has always resonated with the LGBT community and is now displayed throughout the country during Pridefest.
