TikTok Celebrates Pride Month 2021

TikTok is a global entertainment platform that inspires creativity and fuels culture. As such, the platform is committed to nurturing the inclusive and diverse community within the app, by constantly working to make creators from various backgrounds and beliefs feel safe to express their truest selves. 

 

This June, in celebration of Pride Month 2021, TikTok has the unique opportunity to unite the LGBTQ+ community on the platform along with its supporters, through a series of celebrations aimed at empowering, educating, and entertaining all its users. Through this, TikTok hopes to ultimately foster a more inclusive space that is truly a free place for all. 

On TikTok, Everyone is Free to Be

TikTok commemorates Pride Month 2021 by elevating the conversation around its global campaign theme, 'Free to Be', which means having the freedom to be yourself in any and all spaces, being free to evolve into the person you are meant to be, and enjoying the freedom to create content without judgement. It also means being free to push yourself to be better in every way, including checking your biases, learning to understand other people's perspectives, taking an active stand against discrimination, and allowing anyone to feel free to be themselves without the pressure of societal or gendered norms.

  5. Yes we have the freedom to be what we want to be but we need to consider what is true, real and genuine. If we accept and celebrate what is not true then being wrong will be the new normal of the world. If we take pride and stand with what is wrong then truth and reality will just become an illusion
