See How Stars Are Celebrating Pride Month This Year, From Ben Platt to Kim Cattrall
Celebrities are kicking off Pride Month in great spirits this year with celebratory messages and urgent calls to action. In honor of the month-long celebration of love, acceptance, and identity for LGBTQ+ voices, stars are showing their support both as allies and members of the community.
This has been a challenging year as new anti-LGBTQ+ and anti-drag laws have been introduced into legislation, but celebs like Lizzo, Pedro Pascal, Jamie Lee Curtis, Gabrielle Union, and more have been vocal about their protests against them. Speaking on the pressing matter of celebrating Pride Month, this year especially, actor and activist Margaret Cho told Hollywood Life in an interview published on June 1, “Pride feels more urgent and needed. We have to stand up for our rights like never before.”
Celebrities are celebrating Pride Month in other ways, too, this year. On May 31, married pair Niecy Nash and Jessica Betts put their love on full display at The Hollywood Reporter’s second annual “Raising Our Voices” Luncheon in Los Angeles, which promotes diversity and inclusion. The two kissed, laughed, and looked at each other lovingly while posing for pictures on the red carpet.
