Og-preview by seoul-childYour art can help inspire change! Choose a color from the Pride flag and use it to create a work of art that will be united into one extraordinary creation.

June is LGBTQ+ Pride Month and DeviantArt is celebrating as a community.  Create art in a rainbow of colors and we'll combine the pieces into one extraordinary Pride flag! 

DEADLINE EXTENDED: We’ve heard that some artists could use a bit more time, so we’ve extended the deadline by 24 hours. Please submit your Pride art by June 11th at 11:59 PM PDT.

There's something amazing about the individuals who make up the DeviantArt community.  We are unlike any other community on Earth.

Here… we can express ourselves — just as we are.


Here… we are accepted.

Here… we are appreciated as our true, authentic selves.

This June, DeviantArt is proud to celebrate Pride Month, a time that honors and celebrates all who identify as LGBTQ+. We come together as artists and art appreciators, bonded through our shared love of creative expression. When the outside world is disheartening, sometimes a show of support and acceptance is all someone needs to feel understood and appreciated.

Later this month, we'll combine the community's creations and release a new Pride flag-themed widget for deviants to proudly display on their Profiles.  




Choose A Color And Create!

Life
Healing
Sunlight or Energy
Nature
Harmony or Peace
Spirit
Step 1

Choose one of the six colors of the Pride flag.

Step 2

Create art that is primarily that color and is based on the corresponding meaning.

You can also submit or modify previously-created art, as long as it fits the theme.

Step 3

Review the guidelines below and submit your art by June 11th at 11:59 PM PDT!

Submit Your Art

Before you Submit

  • By submitting a deviation, you understand that it may appear in the Pride Profile Flag and/or a Pride Month Video. The Flag and Video may be distributed on DeviantArt and other social networks to promote the project.
  • Any visual medium is welcome. Literature may be submitted as text on an image that includes the associated color as the background.
  • We recommend deviations be at least 1000 x 1000 pixels.
  • Deviations used in the Flag or Video may be altered for cropping and color, and may be animated.
  • You must be the creator of any deviation submitted to this project. If a real person other than yourself appears in an image, please have permission to submit the deviation to this project.


Upcoming Livestreams


6:00 PM PDT on June 6


1:00 PM PDT on June 8


June (TBD)

 

What’s Next

A handful of deviations that best represent the spirit of the campaign will be selected to be displayed in the upcoming Pride flag Profile widget. Some deviations will also be featured on DeviantArt’s social media channels.

If you don't believe that men and even straight white men aren't being marginalized, just listen to what the far-left media and it's supporters have to say about us, falsely branding us Nazis: www.youtube.com/watch?v=h0Rx4e… , www.youtube.com/watch?v=ilCmyw… , www.youtube.com/watch?v=LuRNXF… , or anything that CNN says.

If you don't support gay rights then you must be a homophobic bigot, if you don't support feminism then you must be a sexist-misogynist, if you do not support Black Lives Matters then  you must be a racist member of the Ku Klux Klan, if you do not support the far left and it's extremist ideologies such as socialism/communism then you must be a far-right Nazi supporter/sympathizer.

Either you're all-in with this non-sense or "you're apart of the problem," that statement is bullshit. "Reverse racism doesn't exist," bullshit. Prove to me that it doesn't.

So what does that make Trump supporters, hmm? Call me a "racist-misogynist-homophobic-Nazi-bigot" then you are apart of the problem. Aside from the demographics of being white, being a male, being conservative, and/or being christian/Israelite, there is no real oppression in America. Don't believe me? Then why don't you pay a little visit to 1950's/1960's America, or the 1930's American South?

I rest my case.


Make America Great Again!

Naw man naw. I get you may not like trump, but there is no reason to say kill yourself. You don't know about the person you said that to, they may be suicidal, and that pushes them over the edge. Trump supporter or not.

Just dont do it again, and youre good <3

Being gay is a choice
>Did you choose to be white? No so shut the fuck up
Gays are disgusting
>Compared to all the deep throating I see in public from the majority of you straights, I can indeed say that you are more disgusting.
I don't support gays but I'm not homophobic
>Bullshit. Why not support gays? Not supporting something means being against it. You're either with the program or you're not. If I said I didn't support straights, you know what I'd be called? An oppressed gay who is filled with hatred for "normal" sexuality and I'm dumb : ) so get out sweaty
How do I block notices for things like this? Ugghhh.
>Get your bitchy cry baby ass back in your mother's womb if you can't scroll past a journal. You took your time to read it obviously because you were interested, so just leave. I mean ughhhh, I wish I could block notices from straight people.

Shouldn't the flag be more than 5 images repeated for each color?

The flag is a single image set to repeat for bigger displays to avoid blank spaces, so of course you'll see the same picture repeated

They're just complaining about the LGBT+ community getting a month for themselves.

A month showing that we're just as normal as everyone else. :stare:

I had to block them as they were spouting a LOT of homophobic comments.

Some of my stuff is actually mine, some I found online but didn't find on DA.

And why does the "LGBT" word keep growing? I've seen some idiots always writing "LGBTQIAPK+".

Well i dont know what the K stands for.. if its Kink, kink is not something thats in the acronym, people usually use "Q" "QAI" or just put a "+" since some dont fall under the LGBT letters, I usually use LGBTQ+ or LGBTQAI+, Q for qu**r/questioning, a for asexual/aromantic/agender, i for intersex, etc but people try to say pedophiles and kink/BDSM-ers belong as well, which they dont
Reply
:iconbutthurt12:
butthurt12 Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2017
Don't tell me that pedophiles have their own, um, 'official' community O_O

I find it weird to put more letters in the "LGBT" word, when everyone already knows that it stands for qu**r (why **, btw?) people and others as well as the four L-G-B-T groups. Also, why are asexual and a[other] people considered as LGBT community, though they don't have common qualities or common problems, like not having some rights etc.?
