This year at Pride our “I heart my sexuality” campaign was back again! The focus for 2011 is “Community in Action” because engaging in advocacy for our community stems at least partially from a sense of self-esteem and pride that leads us to seek out greater equality for our community.
We captured many of the ways that our LGBTQ community makes a difference in our world. At PrideFest and Dyke March we video-taped community responses to questions that explore what people love about their sexuality, why they’re a hero, and more.
Here’s our first Pride 2011 video, hot off the editing block! Let’s celebrate all our young LGBTQ heroes!!
