Instagram launched its first channel dedicated to the lives of LGBTI young people on Friday.
#VisibleMe lets young people tell their story as direct and candid as they can.
Raymond Braun organized the campaign, which he said intends to shine a ‘spotlight on diverse, compelling stories from LGBTQ youth’.
‘A few months ago, I launched what has now become the most meaningful project in my life: #VisibleMe,’ he said.
‘People are more likely to support the LGBTQ community when they know someone who identifies as LGBTQ, so I hope this project provides a platform and voice to young people, helping them feel empowered and supported.
‘Most importantly, I hope it shows LGBTQ youth that they are not alone and that they’re part of a community filled with creativity, diversity, resilience, strength, and passion.’
Queer celebrities like Brendan Jordan have added their voice to the project already.
