Every day our amazing and diverse community comes together to exchange experiences through storytelling.

Here at Wattpad, inclusivity and support for the LGBTQ+ community are everyday pillars, and for all of June—Pride month—we're wearing our colors extra loud.

So for this month's #JustWriteIt challenge, we want you to tell a story exploring or celebrating the diverse experiences of the LGBTQ+ community.

Draw upon your own unique history, or take us inside the world of a fictional LGBTQ+ character (LGBTQ+ stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender/Transsexual, Queer/Questioning, the "+" stands for everything else, including, but not limited to: Intersex, Asexual, Aromantic, and Pansexual).

Beyond that, there are no rules—draw outside the lines, use whatever paintbrush you want! What makes your story colorful is also what makes it yours and we want to celebrate that.

Just make sure to tag your story with #JustWriteIt and #LGBTQ so others can find it.
