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.

Celebrate Brave Voices this Pride

~~Published on Jun 27, 2017~~

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.

YouTube Creators for Change is proud to launch #ProudToBe, our fifth annual Pride campaign.

Creators for Change is YouTube’s global initiative dedicated to amplifying the voices of role models who are tackling difficult social issues with their channels. From combating hate speech, to countering xenophobia and extremism, to simply making the case for greater tolerance and empathy toward others, these creators are helping generate positive social change with their global fan bases.

STONEWALL UPRISING

~HONORING THOSE BRAVE SOULS WHO CAME BEFORE ME~

I was a teenager at this time.

I was barely 18 going on 19.

I wasn’t sure about my sexuality yet I knew I was different. I was living in Puerto Rico and cut away from these happenings in New York.

With time, I have come to learn about the importance of this uprising and I honor those who came before me and cleared the way that allowed me to accept and cherish my sexuality and live a fulfilling life, the way I am …

for I was born this way!

Forty-eight years ago today, New York City police began harassing LGBTQ patrons of the Stonewall Inn simply for congregating, those patrons decided they’d had enough.

~Human Rights Campaign~

The Stonewall Riots (also referred to as the Stonewall Uprising or the Stonewall Rebellion) were a series of spontaneous, violent demonstrations by members of the gay (LGBT) community against a police raid that took place in the early morning hours of June 28, 1969, at the Stonewall Inn, located in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City.

They are widely considered to constitute the single most important event leading to the gay liberation movement and the modern fight for LGBT rights in the United States.

IN A PUERTO RICO STATE OF MIND

My country is always on my mind. Y

ou can take a Puerto Rican out of the Island but you can’t take the Island out of a Puerto Rican.

This is a view of one of the old Spanish forts in the Old San Juan are.

The sun, the ocean, the breeze, the sky, the clouds.

That’s how strong being Puerto Rican is.

BREAKING DOWN IN TEARS

This will be a short post because I would like those who visit to watch the video. This is only one of the many American citizens with disabilities whose life will be in peril if this monstruosity:

Better Health Care Bill” is passed by Congress.

Medicaid isn’t about politics, it’s about lives
Mike Phillips is severely physically disabled, but thanks to Medicaid, he’s able to be cared for at home by his family.

In a remarkable interview with Ari Melber, Mike and his mother Karen Clay explain how Medicaid cuts would literally end life as they know it.

ON DEATH

“You know what’s funny about death?

I mean other than absolutely nothing at all?

You’d think we could remember finding out we weren’t immortal. Sometimes I see children sobbing at airports and I think,

‘Aww. They’ve just been told.’”

~Dear Evan Hansen Song in Memory of the Orlando Victims~

In recognition of the one-year anniversary of the attack at Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, where, on June 12, 2016, 49 people were killed and 53 others were wounded, the creators of mashup music videos #HAM4BEY have released their newest collaboration: a moving rendition of “You Will Be Found” from Dear Evan Hansen in memory of the victims.

The music video series was created by artist Michael Korte.

The performers featured are Mario Jose, Vincint, Danielle Withers, and Eric Lyn.

The track was arranged by David Rowen, with vocal production by Alexander Blake. The video was filmed and edited by Baxter Stapleton.

On June 12, 2016 – the same day as the Tony Awards – a gunman opened fire around 2 AM in Orlando’s Pulse gay nightclub, where more than 300 people were inside.

The attack marked one of the deadliest against the LGBTQ community in the nation’s history.
