About this challenge

This month marks the 51st anniversary of the first Pride march. Since 1970, we’ve come together to claim our space, and make our voices heard no matter where we lie on the LGBTQIA+ spectrum. And through it all, there’s been one thing that has undoubtedly served to unify us: Music.

Enter the Pride Playlist Challenge by sharing the soundtrack to your Pride Month. Whether the playlist you create celebrates who you love, your chosen family, your unapologetic-ness, or your community, it should include the anthems by your favorite LGBTQIA+ and allied artists you'll be listening to all month long.

Whether your selected tracks make you want to dance, get you in your feels, or will just bring a parade after-party together, we want to hear it all! Be sure to embed your playlist into your story, and feel free to share images or videos that give us a better look at who you are and what you're proud of.

Crank up the volume, serve face and fierceness because the category is #PRIDE 🏳️‍🌈.
