Val’s Thoughts: Honoring Fierce Gays During Pride Month

June is Pride Month. Let’s not forget our LGBTQ friends!

I’ve been concerned that LGBTQ voices might be lost in the shuffle during this crazy 2020, and I wanted to honor some of my favorites since Pride Month is here. In fact, I’m hoping you’ll add to this list! I would love to find some more gay icons to follow.

For now, here’s some of my favorites who have done wonderful things for the LGBTQ community.

Full disclosure: I’m a married, heterosexual female. Though I will never understand the gay experience or the hardships that this community still faces, when they’re killing it and doing some good in the world, I do want to shout them out!

I think these lovely people represent their communities well. I’ve learned from them. You should too.
