Catriona Gray once again gave her two cents about LGBTQ members and allies constantly fighting for equal rights.
In a social media post, the Miss Universe 2018 titleholder discussed that being an ally is not about fighting for LGBTQ people’s privileges. For her, it is about seeking for equal rights for everyone.
She held that LGBTQ issues should not be worried by the LGBTQ community alone because “it’s about all of us.”
Read her full post below:
"The misconception that LGBTQ issues only matter to those who identify as LGBTQ is a damaging one. It concerns them and not us, some people think. But people need to realise that the fight is not about giving special privileges but providing EQUAL RIGHTS. That’s why ally voices are so important. We need to stand up and say that this is not just about the LGBTQ community. It’s about all of us. Now more than ever we need to try and see each other, no matter how different our lives or situations may look, with empathy."
"This is why Pride Month is so important. It's not just about whipping out your rainbow flag. Since the beginning, #Pride has been a protest. It’s a reminder of how far we've come and to look how far we still have to go. It allows us to reflect on the challenges we still need to overcome and the solutions we still need to find."
"HAPPY #PRIDE BEAUTIFUL FRIENDS! You are seen. You are loved. You are worthy."
