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:

Pride 2020 - Love Yourself!

Weekly journals will also be posted to team to cover some basics of LGBTQ+ history, culture, information, and resources, and we’ll be featuring LGBTQ+ deviants each day on our social channels! We’ve also designed a new badge for your profile so you can show your pride!

DA-Pride2020-heartbadge

Comment with your thoughts on this journal to receive a brand new badge for Pride!

  • Have you celebrated Pride before?
  • What do you think of first when you think of Pride?
  • How do you show support for LGBTQ+ people you know?

Please note: DeviantArt staff may remove a badge if a deviant's comment or contribution doesn't demonstrate the spirit of Pride.

Don’t forget to read our additional Pride journals posted throughout the month!

Have you celebrated Pride before?

No, I have never celebrated Pride Month before, not because I'm against it or anything. It's just not something that is well known where I live, so I tend to forget about it. Though I do enjoy reading comics, for example on Webtoon, that celebrate pride :happybounce: The maximum thing that I might have done is color my profile picture on facebook to represent my pride :la:

What do you think of first when you think of Pride?

The parades in America When the Deviation/Art/Upload is Just Right (icon)

How do you show support for LGBTQ+ people you know?

I don't know many LGBTQ+ people. Well, like I know that my childhood friend is part of the community and I do everything I can to have fun with her and be there for her when she needs me :la: Other than that, I support all the artists I know by either commenting and giving them support on either Instagram or DeviantArt or by watching ads on their videos on youtube so they can earn their income :love:

Have you celebrated Pride before?

Of course I have! Although I am not personally, several of my friends are part of the LGBTQ+ community, and I love them unconditionally. I would never hesitate to participate in a celebratory movement intended to show our inclusion and appreciation for them.

What do you think of first when you think of Pride?

I think of confidence, individuality, unity, and beautiful colours!

How do you show support for LGBTQ+ people you know?

I stand up for them when necessary, and I treat them just like anyone else I may know. Because they are.

Have you celebrated Pride before? Yes, as every day is Pride for me :D

What do you think of first when you think of Pride? I think of being proud of who I am and loving myself as a queer person.

How do you show support for LGBTQ+ people you know? I stick up for them, encourage them, and sometimes give them money when I can.
