Your Virtual Pride Watchlist

Get ready for Virtual Pride!

Today, the Supreme Court passed down a decision that stated that previous civil rights cases are inclusive of the LGBTQIA+ communities. Basically, this means that members of the LGBTQIA community cannot be fired from their jobs because of their identity. Which is a big step for the LGBTQIA+ community during this Pride Month. 

In honor of both the SCOTUS decision and Pride month here is some fun and funky fresh queer content to watch for your Virtual Pride celebrations.
