Pride Month 2023: Celebrating the Impact of BBTV Creators
This Pride Month, we are celebrating the LGBTQIA+ communities, amplifying the conversation around love, justice, and equality by highlighting our BBTV creators that are making a difference.
#PrideMonth is a time to celebrate. We’re using our platform to empower creators and brands to make a positive impact, while amplifying the vulnerable, brave voices that are sharing their lives and experiences with their fans. At the same time, we are educating ourselves on the challenges that underrepresented communities face today. While #PrideMonth is vital in supporting the LGBTQIA+ community, we need to understand that the action of change and support must happen every single day.
