Demi Lovato has released a video for The Trevor Project’s new Pride Everywhere campaign featuring footage from past Pride parades and a voiceover from Lovato where she celebrates the “power” and “resilience” of the LGBTQ community.
“When you see this parade what do you see?” Demi says. “You see people from all walks of life owning their power unapologetically and using it for those who need it. You see resilience in a thousand forms, the strength to stand up despite so many reasons to sit down. You see imagination at every turn, a brilliance shared by creative minds, writing stories, solving problems and painting pictures that will become our history. You see the unrivaled diversity of our people – our ideas and the ways we’re building our future. You see the energy that guides us, that drives us, that promises we’re a part of something big and growing. This is not a parade, this is pride.”
The Trevor Project said its Pride Everywhere campaign is meant to empower young people “to see Pride all around them and celebrate in their unique way,” despite social distancing measures due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In addition to Lovato, The Trevor Project said it is working with “diverse talent” to show solidarity for LGBTQ young people who are isolated from their support systems.
The Trevor Project has created a #PrideEverywhere filter for social media. People are also encouraged to use the hashtag #PrideEverywhere.
