what does pride mean to you? | june 10th 2020

What does Pride mean to us? Pride isn’t just a party and a parade through the streets, it’s our identity, our community. Pride is having the freedom to be yourself and embrace who you truly are, to support others around you and create safe spaces for those who can’t always be their authentic selves. It’s giving people the confidence to come out, to speak out.

Welcome back to In the Spotlight! This moth we have all of our usual interviews and news from around the site, along with an update on an upcoming Prefect event that will be heading your way in the next couple of weeks! 👀 💜💜💜💜 Keep your eyes peeled for a writing event to open soon! It's going to be run differently to writing events/challenges in the past, but should be a lot of fun, and while it will count for House Points, it will be low stakes and, hopefully, really fun! 😊
