A safe space in the digital world–it’s a must, and TikTok does its best in making it happen
It’s always a perfect mixture of overwhelming joy, excitement, and pride upon finding out that someone has disclosed that they’re part of the LGBTQ+ community. Gathering up all the courage and strength to authentically be themselves with their family, friends, and the general public is always something to be thrilled about. But because there are still some of us who have yet to take that giant leap, TikTok continues to tirelessly create a welcoming and empowering space for each and every one of us so we can all feel free to be ourselves–loudly and proudly. With their #ForYourPride campaign, TikTok aims to amplify our voices and take it up a notch as it introduces a more liberating environment, especially for the LGBTQ+ community.
Free to be you and me
Not thinking about how people perceive us is a gratifying feeling, and that’s what the uplifting TikTok movement wants to achieve by being more inclusive than ever. Whether or not we’re part of the LGBTQ+ community, we can share our #ForYourPride pledges through creative content that represents what pride genuinely means to us and why it’s important to honor it. Posting these videos would even mean joining celebrated TikTok content creators who are proud members of the LGBTQ+ family such as Rica Salomon, Roanne Carreon, and Tina Boado. They have been incredibly vocal and passionate about Pride that their inspirational and educational videos have already been embraced by thousands of people.
Taking pride in supportive efforts
TikTok is ensuring a safe and supportive space for all of us to freely be our most authentic selves without having to worry about any type of judgement. The global platform makes that happen through their thorough efforts in investing in a range of tools that help us feel empowered over our TikTok experience, which inevitably creates even more confident individuals.
