Every year in June, we celebrate the fight for equal rights with the LGBTQIA+ community, and although this time around has been different than other years due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the marches have become virtual and celebs are honoring the month with their fans online, letting everyone know that Pride is NOT canceled in 2020.
From surprise marriages to coming out for the first time, we present you with a list of loud and proud celebs on the last day of Pride 2020.
Pablo Alboran came out as gay on an IG video.
“I have the need to share something very personal,” said the artist in a heartfelt video on Instagram. “I have always fought against every manifestation that prohibits… any freedom or equality. From racism, sexism, xenophobia, transphobia, homophobia, and any other type of hatred.”
“Today, I want my voice to be louder and for it to have more value and weight. I am here to tell you I am homosexual, and it is okay. Life goes on, everything will remain the same, but I am going to be a little happier than I already am.”
Ricky Martin is #Fatherhoodgoals
Can we say papasitos? Both Ricky Martin and his husband Jwan Josef are the hottest daddies out there. The Puerto Rican singer shared a photo of the love of his life, who he co-parents four kids with – Valentino, Matteo, Lucía and Renn – holding their youngest daughter when she was a newborn. “Él y yo + 4,” he wrote on the caption. Nuff said!
This month, the regional Mexican singer Raymix released a video coming out as gay.
“Today I am freer, happier than ever because now I know that I can express myself as I really am.” Despite being advised by some acquaintances not to do so, Raymix has been celebrating his orgullo and who he is on every post after his video.
Joy Huerta from Jesse & Joy and her beautiful lesbian family celebrated Pride this month on the cover of Quién magazine
Although Joy Huerta and her wife have been together for ten years, they decided that now was the perfect time to share their story in detail. In times where the LGBTQ+ community still has to march to demand rights and to legalize their union in some countries, Quién Magazine is the first Mexican media to have a family headed by two women on the cover.

Es fácil soñar e imaginar un mundo inclusivo donde abunda el respeto, la tolerancia, la empatía y la compasión. Tan fácil como es construirlo. Si, así de fácil cómo soñarlo. Porque esa construcción está en manos de todas y cada una de las personas que habitamos este planeta, y para alcanzarlo no se requieren esfuerzos inhumanos ni inalcanzables, tan sólo respeto. Para nosotras esta portada representa tantísimo; porque no nos vemos a nosotras mismas, vemos a las miles de familias que sufrieron y sufren discriminación. Vemos a las personas que perdieron su vida por ser personas con diversidad sexual. Vemos a todxs aquellxs que pavimentaron el camino a lo largo de la historia para la comunidad LGBTI+. Y vemos también cómo la diversidad encuentra su camino a la normalización. Gracias revista @quiencom por permitirnos ser parte de su historia, ser parte de la historia de nuestro país y a ustedes convertirse en parte de la nuestra. (@dianaatrim #NoahAtriHuerta )
Raven Simoné surprised her fans by announcing her marriage to Miranda Maday.
“I got married to a woman who understands me from trigger to joy, from breakfast to midnight snack, from stage to home. I love you Mrs. Pearman-Maday! Let’s tear this world a new asshole!!! I’s married NOW.”
