It's June, and that means time to celebrate Pride Month. For the next 30 days, the history and accomplishments of the LGBTQ community will be in the spotlight. And the Pride tweets for 2017 only further highlight the LGBTQ community's tremendous strength and support.
Even a cursory glance at the #Pride2017 tag makes one thing clear: this community is supportive to the max. If these tweets are in any way representative of the community as a whole, then the LGBTQ world has some of the most positive, kind, and inclusive people around. The outpouring of positivity and solidarity for others with similar journeys is humbling. When you consider the morass of hate that too often bubbles up in social media, this dedication to love is all the more impressive.
Persons of all backgrounds have taken to Twitter to share their support throughout the month. Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, asexual, and straight allies alike have one clear message: love is love, in whatever form it arises. (Oh, and in addition to the outpouring of love and positivity, there are tons of absolutely gorgeous rainbow pictures to boot.) It might be the purest, most positive hashtag to trend in a long time. Basically, these tweets can put a smile on your face for the rest of Pride month.
