Tell us, what are you proud of?
Every year in the month of June, PRIDE is held to recognize the impact that LGBTQIA* individuals have had on local, national and international history and culture. The event is a time to commemorate the progress that has been made in redefining what "normal" looks and loves like while also coming together to honor the truths of the work still ahead. The month also serves as a reminder to build community, to be loud and proud, to celebrate sexual diversity and to promote self affirmation. In honor of PRIDE, the #BBATX team asked friends, family and the community to tell us what they're proud of. From self-growth to coming out to perservering and finding love and comfort in community, the answers revealed colorful moments — big and small — to be celebrated. Regardless of how you identify, who you love and or what you believe, we hope you take a moment this month to consider what you are proud of.
