Happy Pride Month!
Write something about LGBTQIA+ pride. It can be a poem, a story, a journal, whatever you want. Cover as many topics as you want. Cover as many genres as you wish. As long as it's something celebrating being proud and true to ones self. And of course, don't forget to tag me.
I'm sure some people on here have noticed that pronouns and other terms are lacking for nonbinary people. They/them is pretty good, but it is met with criticism often. I realize that no matter what, nonbinary pronouns will be met with resistance. I think that there aren't enough words in the english language for us nonbinary peeps. Requirements: a name for a parent (like mom or dad), a pronoun and its forms (he/him/his/she/her/hers), an official term (like sir or ma'am) and a term for general people (like miss or mister). Sorry for the long description, but I look forward to seeing your entries! I'll post one so you can see what I mean.
Write a poem or a song for LGBTQ+ couples everywhere.
There aren't enough poems or songs for LGBTQ+ couples. So let's try and fix that. See if you can write a poem or a song for a same sex couple somewhere. Let them know that their love for each other matters.
LGBT Representation in Children's Programs.

What's are homophobes doing right and wrong?
Atlanta created a challenge a bit back that said, Write an essay about why being homophobic is wrong. https://theprose.com/challenge/10896 I'm combining this with my own idea. You can do one or the other, or both. I don't care.
Marvel recently introduced a new comic line called 'The New Warriors' and it features a new cast of superheroes, two of which are non-binary twins named Snowflake and Safespace, and boy the internet is not happy about this at all, in particular with the two non-binary characters. How do you all feel about this?
All opinions are accepted. But remember to be kind and respectful in your posts/comments. Don't make Stan Lee come down from Heaven, you punks! (lol)
girl in red. iced coffee. anything rainbow. this is an open ended prompt, anything about the LGTBQ+. a story, a moment, a coming out story, how you relate to it, anything. literally anything. (i'm going to write a scene as an example, but anything around LGTBQ+ is welcome.) tag me please!
I have a serious question and thought it would be interesting to make it into a challenge. What is your view on the LGBTQ+ community? I'm genuinely curious. Whatever your view, pro or not, I'd love to hear your side! If you're thinking of posting and getting super religious and/or offensive, please don't. This goes for both sides. I want calm, civil, explanations. Poetry or prose, tag me if you want, and have fun!
I've been feeling pretty down about myself recently with my dysphoria, and I thought I could use some LGBT+ positivity. Any type of writing, any representation, anything that makes you feel a little better about being yourself, or seeing someone else get to be themselves. Happy, safe space time here, let's go!
