🏳‍🌈 June 1, 2020 #I Want My Love Story to Begin CONTEST

edited June 2020 in LGBTQ+

We are the Stonewall girls
We wear our hair in curls
We wear no underwear
We show our pubic hair
We wear our dungarees
Above our nelly knees!

—— Song from Stonewall Riots


June 28, 1969, Stonewall Inn in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City.

Members of the gay (LGBT) community fight against the local police to declare their rights—— the rights to be themselves, leading to the gay liberation movement.

That’s why we are here to celebrate LGBT Pride Month.

GoodNovel has writers and authors from all over the world. People with different culture, different races, different genders, can find their position here.

That’ why we are holding the GoodNovel LGBT Pride Month Contest. We are celebrating the Pride Month, celebrating the courage that modern sexual minorities stand out to show what they love to the world.

Help you tell your LGBT story to the world, that’s the most romantic but meaning thing we can imagine that a story platform could do. Share your LGBTQ+ stories with us. Love is about love, not gender. Let's write the stories that spread affection with the theme of “I’m LGBTQ+, I want my love story to begin...”
We are ready to bring you an exciting writing contest that encourages you to share with the world your love story.
