Love your labels.
Our mission is to advocate and develop programs for people fighting for acceptance and visibility and play an active role in elevating a dialogue around expression, identity, and equality.
Our vision is a world where each person can live free and express who they are without fear of shame, stigma, or bias influencing their opportunity to live happy, healthy, and fulfilled lives.
Founded in 2018, we create events and experiences that further conversations around inclusion, representation, and equality and develop programs that educate and inspire our youth to explore who they are, express themselves, and support each other in their personal journeys.

Support The work of Love Your Labels.
Each of us navigates our own identity and has experiences that shape who we are. But the journey of self discovery is never easy. As young people grow, they are faced with the challenges of understanding the world and their place within it; the Love Your Labels campaign is asking people across the planet to claim their labels to show young people and others that the unique parts of their identity should be celebrated and that they shouldn’t have to feel the need to hide who they are.
Unfortunately, being black or gay or part of other oppressed or marginalized groups is still a very difficult journey. We want this campaign to be seen by those young people who don’t have a support system; who aren’t sure if what they’re feeling or experiencing is ever going to change. We want this campaign to show those individuals who are struggling that it gets better. We want to see a world where no one needs to hide themselves or is treated differently because of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, and/or sexual orientation.
