Celebrate Pride Month 2023 with the Bella Prāṇa Collective in Tampa! The Collective celebrates our LGBTQ+ students, teachers, managers, and entire community! Love is love is love. So what does it look like to celebrate? We’ve put together 7 tips for how to celebrate Pride Month with your family and friends!

  • March, party, participate! While there are many ways you can celebrate and participate in Pride Month, one of the best is attending a local festival, parade or event. Your authentic, real world presence is a meaningful statement of support and celebration. Check out all the local events you can join in on! Maybe join the Collective’s Pride + Flow Yoga Disco on June 11th at 10:45am, donations benefiting Metro Inclusive Health here in Tampa!
  • Experience LGBTQ+ voices and perspectives – Explore local art shows, exhibits, and performances happening near you this June, where you can immerse yourself in vibrant experiences while uncovering inspiring stories that celebrate the rich tapestry of LGBTQ+ culture. The impact and contribution of the LQBTQ+ community is vast and foundational to who we are as a country.
  • Support LGBTQ+ Businesses- Educate yourself on locally owned (or online) LGBTQ+ businesses and be intentional about supporting entrepreneurs. Try printing out your list and posting it on your fridge – aside from having a talking point for meaningful discussion whenever friends and family stop by, you’ll have an awesome go-to list the next time you want to dine out, go shopping or need a service.
  • Get Educated – You can start with learning the vocabulary, so that you can better start and steer conversations about how our community can stand up for LGBTQ+ folks and causes. What does LGBTQ+ mean? True support does the work behind the scenes, so take a moment to check out this glossary of terms provided by the Human Rights Campaign.
  • The Art of Film – Speaking of education, there are some incredible movies and documentaries that educate and celebrate LGBTQ+ culture and history. Here is Time Magazine’s Top 16 LGBTQ+ Movies to Watch This Pride Month, and check out the pre-curated lists this month that you can find in apps like Netflix.
  • Update your drip! There are so many ways to let fashion be a vibrant expression of solidarity. Unleash your purchasing power to support the LGBTQ+ community every single day of the year.
  • Donate to a local LGBTQ organization – Empower the folks that are doing the work of education, support, healthcare and celebration all year round! Making a statement through donation is a foundational way that we signal our support of the of LGBTQ community, so we encourage you to set up a monthly donation and don’t let Pride Month be the only time you show your support. The Collective donates monthly to Metro Inclusive Health, join us!
