During the month of June, the National Marine Sanctuary System will be celebrating Ocean Month and LGBT Pride Month through our #PrideInTheOcean campaign. Our goal is to raise the visibility of LGBTQ+ ocean scientists, athletes, appreciators, and more. Our ocean is for everyone, no matter who you love, and we want to know how you take pride in this blue planet.
In partnership with Pride Outside, we’re asking you to post an image of yourself in, on, or by the ocean with a caption explaining why and how you take pride in the ocean! We are especially looking to center voices from the LGBTQ+ community and welcome submissions from allies promoting inclusivity in ocean spaces and the outdoors.
