All the Ways You Can Celebrate Pride This Month

Study History- We've come a long, long way from the days of Stonewall. It doesn't take much to become educated. Pick up a book, watch a documentary or visit a museum. Keep a few facts like this in mind as a way to remember where we’ve been, where we are now and where we still need to go.

Support LGBTQ+ Causes- Youth centers and campaigns do a lot of the community. Support a cause or donate to an organization like the Human Rights Campaign. Dedicate your time to volunteer at a youth center for LGBTQ+—these centers tend to be a haven for young queer identities.

Support LGBTQ+ Culture and Art- Watch a film centered around the complex lives of a gay couple or attend an art show by a queer artist. Visibility is important to the community. Rally together to make sure these art and culture events are being seen.

Make Your Way to a Pride Parade- Don't just attend a pride parade to drink and be merry. Instead, appreciate the community and diversity. It's a celebration so do have some fun. It's all about love!

There's so much you can do to celebrate pride. Do what you love and remember that love is love!
