7 LGBTQ+ People Share What Beauty Means to Them: "Beauty Means Freedom"
Beauty is very personal, and can mean different things to each individual. We've all heard the phrase "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder," and as corny as it may sound, it's true. It's such a fluid concept that even someone's personal definition of "beauty" can change and evolve over time.
Beauty also doesn't have to involve makeup, although of course it can. Ultimately, what beauty boils down to is a form of self-expression and individuality. Because of that, the beauty industry itself can be both universal and inclusive, as it should be.
In honour of Pride Month and celebrating the ability to manifest beauty in any way you choose, seven LGBTQ+ people told POPSUGAR what beauty means to them, ahead.
