June Is Pride Month, A Time To Commemorate The Stonewall Riots Of 1969 Through Pride Events Around The World As A Form Of Support And Love For The LGBTQ+ Community.
While South Korea is still on the conservative side when it comes to LGBTQ+ issues, it has become increasingly common for celebrities to show their support for the issue in recent years. One of them is Huh Yunjin LE SSERAFIM .
Still, it’s considered risky to outwardly show support for the LGBTQ+ community on a platform as big as the K-Pop industry. So whenever an idol vocalizes with their support, that’s a big thing.
This is especially true for rookie idols who have not been in the industry for a long time. And that’s what makes Yunjin LE SSERAFIM’s post on the group’s official Twitter account even more important and bold!
June is Pride Month, a time to commemorate the Stonewall Riots of 1969 through pride events around the world as a form of support and love for the LGBTQ+ community. And on June 2nd, Yunjin made a support post.
“A little throwback to (celebrating) Pride. I love you. Unconditionally. #LE_SSERAFIM #HUHYUNJIN,” Yunjin wrote on LE SSERAFIM’s official Twitter account. Along with this post, he also included a photo that appeared to have been taken while filming the debut teaser.
The photos he posted show Yunjin playing with a bunch of brightly colored paint on the wall. The comment written by the “FEARLESS” singer may refer to the colors of the rainbow that are often associated with the LGBTQ+ community. The comments on the post show how proud and happy the fans are for Yunjin’s support!
“You will change the idol industry. I love you more deeply. Unconditionally,” commented fans. “OMG YUNJIN you really don’t know how much this means to us LGBT Ssera stans! Thank you for acknowledging us, I know many idols can’t or refuse to do it! Love you endlessly,” said another fan. “My first Pride Month. I feel very loved. I love you so much, Yunjin,” added another.
