New Delhi: The whole world is celebrating Pride Month. In the month of June, it's rainbow wherever you look and that shows how long we all have come and gives hope for a more inclusive and loving future.
The queer folks have struggled for long to have a voice in the society and it is our duty to stand by them while they continue to fight, just like an ally. There are celebrities who are allies and use their platforms to raise awareness among the people and are unafraid of showing their support for the LGBTQIA+. Here are a few of them:
Katrina Kaif is a beautiful modern-day lady with an endearing personality. Her beauty brand - Kay Beauty shared some beautiful posts on Instagram with beautiful captions. One of them read, “We stand together. Let's embrace love and the capability it has to bring us all closer to one another. During these unprecedented times of pain and loss, let the power of love strengthen us.”
Further, they shared, “The celebration of equal love is a year-round agenda for us at Kay Beauty, but this month we hope to deliver to you, even more colour, happiness, and positivity and aim to promote individuality, freedom of expression, and most importantly self-love. Happy Pride Month.”
Priyanka has always been vocal about her ideologies and has set a strong example for women across the world.
