Pride Month Recap

Pride Month Recap

We celebrated Pride this June in ten of our largest cities, which meant thousands of Pride flags, hundreds of Lyft Pride t-shirts, dozens of enormous parade balloons, and one multicolored Lyft car. We left each event feeling proud to support such a great cause. We also asked the Lyft community, "What does Pride mean to you?" and saw some incredible, inspiring responses.

#BetterTogether Contest

 

Of the hundreds of stories submitted, four really stood out to us. Here are the winners of the #BetterTogether social contest. 

“What’s better than having one mama? Having TWO! These women are the definition of kind, resilient and beat all the odds. They created a family when people told them they couldn’t. They raised their girls and their grandkids to understand the struggle but join the fight for peace. We are #BetterTogether. We are a powerful force of love to be reckoned with!” - Passenger Kari in Indiana

”Pride to me is a chance to be totally me and not afraid to show the world who I am or who I love. My husband and I danced to Jack Johnson's #BetterTogether last August when we were legally able to get married in Hawaii!” - Ray in Seattle

“Pride is being happy with who you are and and being true to yourself. Surround yourself with only positive people and those who will ‘Lyft’ you up. My wife in this photo (on the right) has brought great joy to my life — she’s my best friend and I couldn’t be happier!” - GS in Phoenix
