June is here, which means Pride Month is also here!
Pride month is all about celebrating LGBTQIA+ culture, (and allies, too!) and we're bringing that celebration here, too!
So we're hosting a Pride Month Extravaganza!
This is an event to share our pride, remember those who have paved the way for us to be able to express our pride, and to strengthen our love and support of the LGBTQIA+ community of all ages, races, and ethnicities.
This is a non-competitive event, so don't worry about doing or being the best! Anything and anyone is welcome to participate in any degree and form. :)
And if you stick around, there may be a surprise or two or three or more in store for all participants... ;)
(And the more submissions, the more surprises... Hehehe...)
** Please note: though we are celebrating all sexualities and identities, we do not support nor condone pedophilia or zoophilia.
How to participate:
♥ Share! Post art, photos, poems, stories, anecdotes- anything in any form that celebrates anything LGBTQIA+ culture! It can be things like a sketch of your character sporting a rainbow flag, photos from a pride parade (keeping it PG-13, of course!), a story of your experience with LGBTQIA+ life, etc. Again- there's no minimum or maximum for this. :)
♥ We also welcome any links to LGBTQIA+ resources such as helpful websites, bits of history, people of note, etc. Anything and everything educational is more than welcome!!
This event will be running from the moment it's posted until the end of June!

Let's also take a moment to remember.
Though we are celebrating our LGBTQIA+ culture- we do not want to forget that it has taken fight to get here. And that we are still fighting. We want to honor those who have given not just their voice- but those who have given their lives.
From the Stonewall riots to the Orlando nightclub shooting; even in the countries seen as the most progressive still struggle with violence against LGBTQIA+.
Together, though; we are strong.
In honor of June Pride Month, the wonderful whimsy has created Pride Premades for all to use on chat, in their signatures, off-site- anywhere for anything! :D
You are 100% welcome to mod these in any way you'd like- there's even a "blank" version for you to customize as needed!
