June is recognized as LGBTQ+ Pride Month around the world, a celebration of personal identity, acceptance, and love. Join us for a month of education about and celebration of the LGBTQ+ community!
The importance of Pride is hard to overstate. Pride provides community and a way for LGBTQ+ people to come together and celebrate who they are in places and ways that empower. From those who are learning about themselves to those who have been out and proud for years, Pride is a chance to embrace love and personal expression, and is an opportunity to learn about LGBTQ+ history and culture.
On DeviantArt, we’re celebrating the LGBTQ+ community with new art and new Pride-themed journals! We’ve commissioned six LGBTQ+ artists to create new works that you can use as cover images for your Profile, and they’ll be revealed each week, starting with this work by @Pepperoonie:
Weekly journals will also be posted to @team to cover some basics of LGBTQ+ history, culture, information, and resources
