Design for Good – The Diversity of Design in LGBTQ+ community & causes Heritage of Pride’s visual identity update
Pride month is the occasion to lift up voices in the LGBTQ+* community. And while a time of celebration, we mustn’t forget that the origins of pride come from a serious place, where gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and other queer members of society have had to fight for their rights and voices to be heard. For many, the freedom to assume one’s true identity openly is a courageous step. So, it makes sense that often design around the LGBTQ+ community and Pride is bold and colourful, as a message that the time has come where no one should feel the need to hide, and driving home the real importance of Pride month. In honour of the LGBTQ+ community, we’ve rounded up designs for campaigns and causes that leveraged creativity for a proud and positive impact. The range of graphic design and creative ideas illustrate that the aesthetic is every bit as diverse as the community itself.
