Gay Pride or LGBT Pride is the positive stance against discrimination and violence toward lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people to promote their self-affirmation, dignity, equality rights, increase their visibility as a social group, build community, and celebrate sexual diversity and gender variance.
Pride, as opposed to shame and social stigma, is the predominant outlook that bolsters most LGBT rights movements throughout the world.

In a world where some people still try to silence LGBTQ+ voices, the act of being yourself is an act of bravery for all to see. And in the context of a global climate that highlights the vulnerability of LGBTQ+ rights. It’s more important than ever that LGBTQ+ voices and stories are shared and heard.
An inclusive, vibrant, ever-expanding LGBTQ+ community has been a vital part of YouTube since we started. And we’re proud to stand with a group that believes every human being deserves the right to be who they are and love who they love.
So to all those brave voices who continue to make Youtube the colorful, diverse and supportive place it is, we’re #ProudToBe with you.

On Dancing with the Stars, Cheryl Burke, the Mirror Ball Trophy-winning professional dancer returns to the show during the ninth week of performances. Cheryl will give an emotional sneak peek at her own live stage show, “Love on the Floor.” She brought the show to Japan first, in 2016, with Olympic gold medalist figure skater Kristi Yamaguchi who won Season 6 (2008) with Mark Ballas.
Cheryl says “Love on the Floor” is all “the relationships we go through – the romance, the passion, the hurt.” That said, she reassures fans that there is a happy ending in “Love on the Floor.”
