Pride, Pyaar Aur Pinterest

Happy Pride Month! Pinterest is proud to participate in a celebration that marks a turning point for queer rights and recognition efforts by the LGBTQIA+ community in India. Whether you identify as a member of the queer community or are an ally, we stand with you.

Let us come together

to create a society that embraces diversity, where individuals are empowered to break free from societal expectations, and where redemption and personal happiness are celebrated. To mark this effort, we’re overjoyed to present a string of role models who’ve taken a step forward in their self-acceptance journey and motivated tons of others with it.

Manish’s message for the Pride community

One major message Manish would like to send out to all would be to “take care of your mental health.” People in the LGBTQIA+ community are already going through a lot, so “put yourself first and take care of yourselves.”
