The Weekly Challenge, 22nd June 2020 – Token of Love
The month of June is Pride month!
Pride is a global celebration of the LGBTQ+ community, and a chance to come together in love and friendship. As well as being a month long celebration, Pride month is also an opportunity to peacefully protest and raise political awareness of issues facing the community. It is an opportunity to challenge intolerance in the past and present and pave the way for the future. This week’s challenge comes from Adam Ali Gseebat, who is a British Libyan writer and actor.
Create your Token of Love. This week’s challenge is your chance to celebrate somebody in the LGBTQ+ community. They might be somebody that you know – somebody you go to school or work with, somebody in your family, or a friend. It might even be yourself! Or, they might be somebody you don’t know, but you admire. You could do some research to help you – they might be a historical figure, a politician, an activist or a celebrity.
Celebrate in your own way! You could write a poem about them, sketch them, learn about them, share their stories and look for more. The way you celebrate is up to you. What does it mean to support LGBTQ+ Pride?
