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.
Lisa & Lauren
Lisa & Lauren are lifestyle influencers inspiring others to live great adventures and creating a safe place for the LGBTQIA+ community. Lauren is from Southern California and Lisa is from Sweden which is where their paths crossed, and they continue to love exploring and traveling the world. Lisa and Lauren were married in 2016 and have since been chasing their dreams while creating a beautiful life together on a farm in Sweden.
When it comes to content, Lisa and Lauren give insight on their creative/business projects, take you on their adventures, and get real about marriage and life. Follow them on Instagram, Youtube, and their blog!
Ariana and Hannah, also known as The Angelinos, are an interracial couple living in Los Angeles, California.
