LGBT YouTubers Share Why They Are #ProudToBe Queer

Happy Pride!

In honor of 2016 Queer Pride, YouTube brought together a group of its most popular lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) personalities to discuss why they are #ProudToBe queer.

The YouTube #ProudToBe campaign occurring in conjunction with the above video encourages others to share their own story, photo or video using the hashtag to engage in a larger, virtual conversation about what Pride means to them.

"Around the world, YouTube has consistently been a place where people can express who they are and a place where people can find community, especially when they may not be able to find it at home," a YouTube spokesperson told The Huffington Post. "No matter who you are, YouTube gives you a voice and the opportunity to connect with those who share a similar story. We are proud to be a platform where our users can be exactly who they are, and the LGBTQ community is integral to that voice and that message."
