From Judith Utz’s article for Teen Vogue:
For all that we celebrate Pride in the public eye — outside, on the streets, on stage, throughout our communities — fundamentally, Pride is a deeply personal experience, felt and understood by one’s self for oneself. Whether you want to shout it from the rooftops or revel quietly from home, it is a time of celebration, of mutual acknowledgment, of belonging. A time for remembering the Stonewall riots of 1969 and of recognizing just how far the community has come since that time.
Delving into this very personal relationship with Pride, Teen Vogue asked fifteen creatives from across music, books, and the visual and performing arts to answer one very simple question: what does Pride mean to you?
