It has been 50 years since Lambda Legal first began fighting for the rights of LGBTQ+ people, and four decades of fighting for everyone living with HIV. We’ve fought for full marriage equality, the end of sodomy laws, an end to HIV criminalization and for accurate gender markers—and now, we are fighting against a slew of anti-LGBTQ+ legislation, including “Don’t Say Gay or Trans” bills, restroom restrictions, and denying transgender people critical, gender-affirming care. These laws are a threat to our progress, our rights, and our lives.
But for the last 50 years, we have stood alongside our communities to show everyone, from our neighbors to the Supreme Court, that even in the face of discrimination and attacks on our rights, we will not be silenced. Our history reminds us that we cannot be stopped when we stand together, and that is what makes our pride unstoppable.
Now it’s your turn: what makes you unstoppable this Pride month?
We’re kicking off Pride by collecting your short videos where you tell us what makes you unstoppable. Is it the support of a loved one or your community? Is it how you fearlessly express yourself and live out loud? Is it your personal commitment to justice and equality? Whatever makes you unstoppable, we want to know.
To submit your 30-60 second video, visit tribute.co/lambdalegal, follow our tips for recording your video, and upload your story alongside everyone else who is unstoppable–just like our Pride.
As your messages pour in, you’ll be able to hear from other members of our community and connect through everyone’s strength. This project is a reminder of the importance of speaking your truth and the power of pride in the face of those who want to strip away our rights, our presence, and our truth.
But we’re here to show them that we are unstoppable.
