The way the LGBTQ+ community has been portrayed in popular culture has come a long, long way in recent years. Although there's still a lot of work to be done, so many creative queer folks have been making awesome and inclusive movies, music, TV shows, and more that better represents our lives and our stories, so in honor of Pride Month, we're taking the time to honor 25 of these inspiring people! This is the 2019 #PRIDE25!

One of the world's most visible Deaf activists, sexually fluid America's Next Top Model and Dancing with the Stars alum Nyle DiMarco has beauty, brains, and a heart of gold. His intersectional activism is still very much needed in a world where queer people with disabilites are very underserved and underrepresented in all industries and aspects of life, especially in media. And this year, he co-founded the Amplify Entertainment Company, an organization that "empowers the 1.4 billion people living with disabilities to tell their stories."

"Everyday we see diversity, everywhere we go," Nyle said in an Instagram post after taking a pledge to help make the world more inclusive. "Diversity and inclusion shouldn’t be and is not about ensuring representative numbers but about making the world as it is."

Keep up-to-date with Nyle and his work by following him on Instagram and Twitter!
