Pride Month 2021: Creator Highlights
June is #PrideMonth – a time to celebrate the diverse LGBTQ+ communities and educate ourselves on the challenges that still exist today. Last year during Pride Month, we grappled with June as a crucial time for a number of social movements taking place across the world. Seeking justice and equality for all, especially during a global pandemic that mandated safe distance measures, has brought many of us closer together than we ever expected.
More than ever, LGBTQ+ creators, brands and allies are flocking to YouTube to digitally celebrate the power of Pride with a myriad of videos dedicated to the diverse LGBTQ+ communities. Here at BBTV, we’re excited to highlight our creator network, home to a global community of LGBTQ+ creators sharing their lives and experiences with their fans. We’re proud to not only support and amplify their voices during Pride Month but every day of the year.
From beauty, fashion, lifestyle, sports, social justice, and education, our LGBTQ+ creators are integral to our network. Below, we’re highlighting some of our LGBTQ+ creators that are making a significant impact on YouTube and beyond.
