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.

Image

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!!

Image

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.

Image

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!

Also sorry to double post but I wanted to share some very real words from a friend





I wanted to take a minute to share something, my buddies. It’s pride month. Most of you are supportive. Some of you are not. Just wanted to give you a little insight.

When you see my pictures on here you see my absolute joy in my current life. Maybe you love that, maybe you roll your eyes.

What you don’t see is when [wife] and I step out of our vehicle somewhere and take a minute or two to decide if it’s safe for us to hold hands or smile at each other.

You don’t see my hesitation when I meet a new neighbor and they ask if I’m married.

You don’t see a guy at the bar call [wife] a f** when she comes out of the bathroom. You don’t see employees at the hardware store refuse to help her when she has short hair.

You don’t see us choosing our travel plans based solely on our safety as a couple.

You don’t see me sitting quietly at home, looking at all the photos of my cousin’s recent wedding where our family is celebrating his joy. You don’t see how much it hurts that they refused to come to mine.

You don’t see it because our sweet, simple life is full of smiles and laughter and good friends... But just because you don’t see the darkness doesn’t mean it’s not there... and it’s so much worse for so many people.

So that’s why pride month is still important. Maybe kindness and understanding will win out if we keep letting others know it’s okay to be happy with who they are. Maybe the darkness will get smaller and smaller until one day it’s completely gone.




I think any lgbtq+ person can relate to her words, especially for those of us who live in rural areas. Happy pride month everyone and please stay safe!

Me and some pals at my first Pride in Madison, WI in 2018 ;_;
ft. my pansexual flag outfit <3
I grew up in a super unaccepting environment so this was one of the first times I was able to really start exploring what being queer means to me and everyone there was so sweet

HAPPY PRIDE !!! i hope everyone's staying safe!! this is such a nice wholesome event ;;;
here's some art i did back in 2019! labelling my gender and sexuality has always been a struggle for me, and although this is a bit outdated it's what i felt comfortable with [abrosexual demigirl] :]

I have no photos rn but I did officially come out as pan this year to my friends and followers on social media. I was more nervous to post it on Facebook because I have my family on there to where I know they wouldn’t really understand so I only posted it to Instagram first. I got so much support there I decided to post it on Facebook. I got so much overwhelming support that I’m glad I chose this year to say something about it. Every pride month is change my pfp on Facebook to Pan colors but I don’t think anyone really knew what it meant, so yay to finally being *social media publically* out!

Happy pride to all!
