Our Colors United is a worldwide social media movement that works to spread love, acceptance, and advocacy within the LGBTQ+ youth community. We have created a platform where youth can come and feel accepted and supported and have gained over 1.4 million followers along the way.
How It Started
Our Colors United was created in March of 2022 by One Life Project executive management as a way to further assist LGBTQ youth. It started with a TikTok account where we posted videos and supportive posts for LGBTQ youth and teens. This account turned into an Instagram and Facebook account and it quickly became a platform where LGBTQ youth could come and interact with each other, ask questions, and get support for how they were feeling. Today, we have over 1.4 million followers across a few social media platforms and we have a team of LGBTQ advocates that work on these pages to support and advocate for those who need support and assistance.
What is pride?
LGBTQ pride (pride) is the celebration and acceptance of all individuals within the LGBTQIA+ community including lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and asexual people as well as those questioning their gender and/or identity. Pride month is every June and usually involves pride festivals across the world where LGBTQ+ individuals and supporters gather together for parties, events, and parades where we are able to celebrate being ourselves.
