Our queer and/or trans (QT) communities are made up of beautiful, amazing QT pies! #imaqtpie is a way to recognize, celebrate, appreciate, and empower our identities.
Queer and/or trans people often receive messages that tell us who we are, what we look like or who we love is wrong, weird, disgusting and worse. These messages aren't always blatant homophobic or transphobic speech or actions, they are also conveyed in more subtle ways that nonetheless take their toll on how we see ourselves and what we feel we are worth. With these negative messages surrounding us we need to make sure we have postitive messages that are powerful and persistent to provide a counterbalance.
#imaqtpie is an act of self-love and proclamtion to all QTs that we are beautiful and amazing.
#imaqtpie is an act of resistance against those who try to tell us otherwise.
