June may be behind us, but Pride isn't something to celebrate for one month. From gender-affirming care for trans youth to abortion access to queer people, LGBTQ+ rights are under attack.

Because the month is over, that doesn't mean Pride is. One of the best ways to honor LGBTQ+ Pride is through protest, according to the Human Rights Campaign.

"We need Pride to fucking fight back," one participant in a recent Pride event told HRC.

Another told the organization, "I don't want our fear to have us hiding. I want our fear to drive us and empower us."
