Celebrating pride month together!

As you may be aware pride events for pride month are cancelled but i've decided to put together a lot of things we could do together and you guys can give me any suggestions too! 
From June 1st i will start making fun threads a few ideas i have so far is

- Pride themed word searches and crosswords

- DIY tutorials on how to make rainbow things such as bracelets, hair ties, ect and we can share creations!

- Gender and Sexuality 101(i'll probably pick a sexuality or gender identity and make a thread about it! what it is, facts, myths ect)

- LGBT hugs thread? this could be a place where you share any struggles regarding lockdown and pride but also a place for support when dealing with sexuality or gender issues, relationship struggles and questioning and confusion.

- History time! (take a lesson in LGBT history, i'll talk about famous lgbt people in history)

-Quiz/general knowledge! (i'll make lil quizzes where the answers are in a spoiler you can see how you do!

- Lots of places will be doing online livestream celebrations i'll keep you updated on what and where :)

If you guys have any other ideas, suggestions on mine or want to get involved let me know!

    Adding on another idea! I'll be working on a playlist for the Spotify account

    It will include songs written by LGBT+ artists or LGBT+ songs :)

    I would love to get involved please! A few ideas that I have so far are:

    - A thread of all the ways to celebrate Pride virtually (I have a few ideas!)
    - Photo competition: sharing your favourite rainbow photos, taken by yourself or by others. This could be a literal rainbow, flags, rainbow roads/walls etc 
    - A positive thread for coming out stories. I think your idea of a hug thread is so super important, but I also think if anybody has any positive stories to share of coming out, that could be a good way to recognise that sexuality truly is something to be celebrated and that it can all work out well :)

    Any other ways that I could get involved/help you out please do let me know, I would love to help!

    Those are great suggestions! coc0mac! 

    I was thinking about a photo thread that's a good idea people could share their favourites! 

    I really like the positive thread it's a great way to bring the community together

    I love them I have no set plans on posting so it's just whenever and whatever you feel like ☺️ 

    I'm also happy for you to get involved in any of the suggestions I've made! :)

    These are all really great ideas guys! I was so disappointed that I wouldn't get to go to Pride this year or my local's drag night but I've attended so many wonderful virtual Pride celebrations already this month :) super important for us all to stay connected right now!

    Sometimes all you need is one person to believe in you , for you to begin to believe in yourself.
