HAPPY PRIDE MONTH to my fellow queer folks! ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜🤎🖤🏳️🌈
FUN FACT — I was born this way. I became aware of my queerness when I was four years old, but I didn’t have the language to express myself as a little girl. In every facet of my life, I often revisit inclusivity, especially as a Black, queer fitness blogger. In my blogs, I often discuss intersectionality in the context of health and wellness.
While I celebrate my queerness every day, I thank Marsha P. Johnson for her role. Let’s be very clear, we wouldn’t have Pride without Black trans women. As you may know, Pride commemorates the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in Manhattan. Following a police raid at the Stonewall Inn, demonstrations sparked, and queer pioneers like Marsha fought for liberation.

To be more inclusive, there have been redesigns of the original Pride Flag. These flags were developed to represent the Black, Brown, trans and intersex communities.
Intersex-Inclusive Pride Flag – created by Valentino Vecchietti (She/They)
