Like many other cultural or indigenous celebrations where Americans dedicate a month of their time, attention, and support to a movement or group of people that have historically undertaken insurmountable injustices, Pride Month is grossly underserved.
Thirty calendar days each June isn’t nearly a sufficient measure of time to amplify LGBTQ voices, fight for LGBTQ rights, and celebrate LGBTQ culture. Similar to Black History Month, Hispanic Heritage Month, and Women’s History Month - the LGBTQ community deserves more time, more action, more change, more everything.
This month, and for the remainder of the year, our new StoriesEdit Pride collection will be available for free. The collection highlights a wide range of inclusive and celebratory Pride symbols, graphics, and thought starters meant to allow the LGBTQ community to share their stories and amplify their truths.
The StoriesEdit Pride collection was also created to promote social and digital allyship. We want to empower everyone to leverage this collection of templates to highlights family, friends, artists, creators, and anyone they admire in the LGBTQ community for making a difference in our global community.
Celebrating Pride beyond the ceremonial month of June is the least we can do. In addition, we’re using this platform to dive into the origins of Pride Month and the power in the movement controlling its own narrative.
