5 Inspiring LGBTQIA+ Influencers To Follow

5 Inspiring LGBTQIA+ Influencers To Follow

Instagram can be such a powerful platform for expression and inspiration when we use it in a positive way. We can share what we’re passionate about, give a small glimpse of our lives, and even be an advocate for change. It’s empowering to see people live openly and educate others! Nena & Co. is committed to highlighting diverse perspectives across the board including but limited to race, ethnicity, religion, culture, gender, and sexuality.

Because of our commitment to inclusion and diversity and the celebration of Pride Month, we feel inspired to share five influencers who are sharing their personal stories. Each of them are striving to be true to themselves, share their life journeys, and create safe places for the LGBTQIA+ Community on Instagram.
