Some lovely soul included a link to unicorn gifs so that's the theme we're going with Smiley LOL


Firstly to @xXLexi_Lou122Xx, a double nomination! Firstly for making it to the end of the school term. Even though there are some nasty rumours going around about you, you kept going. Even when you wanted to give up. Keep going Lexi! Secondly a huge hive five for being proud of not only yourself for getting through the big week of camp, but for being proud of the rest of the community! We're proud of you too Lexi_Lou! Heart

For @Sunflower18 for bravely sharing your recent experience of losing your dad to support another member whose family members are experiencing cancer. It is not easy to share an experience so near to your heart, and so soon after losing someone. Your willingness to support another person on a similar journey is so beautiful- if I could nominate you for 10 Friday Fives for this post, I would! Heart Heart  Heart  Heart  Heart

As we're headed into Friday evening and transitioning into the weekend, it's time for some Friday Fives to celebrate the sheer awesomeness we see here on RO Heart
You guys rock!

In honour of it being 50 years since the moon landing, we're going with a space theme this week!


So first a huge Friday Five to @queenP! Heart  for this absolutely incredible post in the Special Discussion on Sexuality! While this is a belated feedback five, your post was so incredible in the way you shared your experience of exploring sexuality, how that journey changed over time, and the different types of attraction that you explored to understand what was important to you in a relationship. Here's one of our fave quotes: "No one gives you a rulebook when it comes to understanding sexual attraction, and is often more gray than black and white. While sexuality is something that just eventually feels right, it is completely okay to experiment with different identities and sexualities until you find the version of yourself that feels the most authentic." Such a legend!

Next a big Friday Five to @Tiny_leaf ! Smiley Very Happy xx For your incredible support to so many members this week! You may notice that there's not a link to a particular post here, and that's because there's so many examples! Your compassion and insight blow us away so often, and you've got such a beautiful way with words that conveys a lot of caring and understanding Heart
