HuffPost Celebrates LGBTQ Pride, Love And Resistance In 2018
Pride is a time of love and celebration – but also, especially in 2018, one of solidarity and resistance. Because of this, HuffPost is observing Pride month through a lens we're calling #TheFutureIsQueer where, for us, being queer is not just about identity – it's about action.
We're fighting for a world and a future where everyone values the lives and well-being of LGBTQ people. Where people are free to understand and embrace their own identities outside of outdated and binary ways of thinking. Where the young people who make up the queerest generation ever can make a real, tangible impact on the world. And where queerness and being different is seen as something to be celebrated.
Join us throughout June as we elevate the voices of LGBTQ people and their allies and envision what a queer, truly inclusive and compassionate future could look like.
