#ProudToBe

Youtube has just launched it’s fifth Annual Pride campaign #ProudToBe

There is some great messages in there as well as some fantastic learning opportunities for classrooms to embrace and understand difference as well as gain confidence in discussing new subjects. We’re proud to share it.

In a world where some people still try to silence LGBTQ+ voices, the act of being yourself is an act of bravery for all to see. And in the context of a global climate that highlights the vulnerability of LGBTQ+ rights, it’s more important than ever that LGBTQ+ voices and stories are shared and heard.

An inclusive, vibrant, ever-expanding LGBTQ+ community has been a vital part of YouTube since we started. And we’re proud to stand with a group that believes every human being deserves the right to be who they are and love who they love. So to all those brave voices who continue to make Youtube the colorful, diverse and supportive place it is, we’re #ProudToBe with you.
