I love this city’s unbridled embrace of #pride every year. It makes it easy to forget there are still pockets in this country that have some catching up to do. DC is special for a lot of reasons, but this month always ranks high on my list. 🌈

On Thursday, #DC installed a permanent rainbow crosswalk at 17th and P Streets near Dupont Circle in honor of Pride month. The crosswalk colors include the traditional colors of the rainbow Pride flag, plus the colors of the transgender Pride flag — light blue, pink and white — along with brown and black stripes to represent LGBTQ persons of color. 📷: DDOT/Mario Sessions. #MyDCcool

Male teachers across Spain are joining the Clothes Have No Gender (#laropanotienegenero) movement, which started in October 2020 after a student, Mikel Gomez was expelled and referred to psychologists after wearing a skirt to school.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Gomez made a viral TikTok about the incident, saying he wanted to show support for feminism and diversity by wearing the skirt. Jose Piñas (pictured at right) was one of the first teachers to join the movement and wear a skirt to class.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Piñas tweeted with the photo, "20 years ago I suffered persecution and insults for my sexual orientation in the institute where I am now a teacher… many teachers, they looked the other way."⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Two more teachers, Manuel Ortega (left) and Borja Velazquez (center) joined in and started wearing skirts to class after one of their students was bullied for wearing an anime shirt. The student was called homophobic slurs and eventually changed out of embarrassment. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Ortega tweeted, "A school that educates with respect, diversity, co-education and tolerance. Dress how you want! We join the campaign #clotheshavenogender."⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Teachers are the best. We're proud of these ones for joining in to support and advocate for their students!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
