Pride is a time where we not only celebrate our identity but our diversity. We are grateful to live life openly and with so much love and support. So many have fought for LGBTQIA+ rights and now is the time to keep fighting.

It's a privilege to live life as an artist and we look forward to exploring more representation of queer life and themes on and off the stage!

Our world is becoming more close minded, spreading hate and violence, so we must be proud of who we are. We must be present and be able to exist. Now is the time to stand up in life and art and be unapologetically ourselves. Love is the only way forward! Happy Pride ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜
