Bring out all the hues of the rainbow — it’s LGBT (Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender) pride month. Observed in June every year, the aim is to recognise the impact the LGBT community has had on the world and to also to celebrate individualistic sexuality. The month honours the 1969 Stonewall riots where the members of the community broke out in spontaneous protests against a police raid. Initially observed on the last Sunday of June, the LGBT Pride Day soon grew to include month-long events.
Supporters from all across the world show their love in all possible ways — from participating in events for the community and starting social media campaigns to posting pictures with their same-sex baes to dressing up their pets in colours of pride.
Another route that many take is to go for #rainbowmakeup or #LGBTmakeup. Confused? Take a look. And, if you also want to join the pride wagon, start practicing!
