Continuing with our tradition to rotate the accounts we follow based on causes and social issues that matter to us: For the month of June we “proudly” shine a light on PRIDE. This month we pay tribute to the accounts supporting the LGBTQ+ community – those young and old, their families and friends, accounts that reflect on the past and are hopeful for a deservedly more inclusive future. We stand with you and support you 🌈 Because it’s very simple: love is love. Images above from the accounts we are now following and artist Ruben Guadalupe Marquez
The caption reads: “This month we pay tribute to the accounts supporting the LGBTQ+ community — those young and old, their families and friends, accounts that reflect on the past and are hopeful for a deservedly more inclusive future.
“We stand with you and support you. Because it’s very simple: love is love.”
The 11 accounts are also on the couple’s follow list for the month. These include The Trevor Project, an American non-profit for suicide prevention; UK charity Stonewall, which fights for LGBTQ rights; and the Elton John AIDS Foundation, which supports people with HIV.
One of the pictures in the collage featured Princess Diana with HIV patient Gerard McGrath at the AIDS hospice London Lighthouse back in the 1990s.
