It’s finally June and the weather is warming. Birds are chirping, and Pride is in the air. As of June 1st, Pride Month 2019 is officially in full swing and that means major cities across the country are hosting parades, marches, weekend events, and celebrations of all kinds that encourage members of the LGBTQ+ community and their allies to be prideful of who they are and who they love. For these reasons, June is one of — if not the — best month of the year (in our opinion anyway).

If you and your pals are headed out to celebrate Pride this month and want to share your festivities on social media, we’ve come up with 21 Instagram captions you can use to share the love.

From inspirational quotes to hilarious sayings and catchy song lyrics, there’s something for every Pride-lover on this list.

Show your fellow queer, non-binary, gender-fluid friends you care by putting your love for the LGBTQ+ community on blast.

Use hashtags like #pride, #pridemonth, and #loveconquersall to become a part of the online community. Then, log off and tune into the party. Dance, march, sing, and shout your desire for equality — and don’t forget to join the pack by flying your rainbow flag.

1. “Oops, my Pride is showing.”

Yeah, you’re proud to be a part of or an ally to the LGBTQ+ community? What of it? Sorry not sorry.

2. “It ain’t no lie, baby I’m bi, bi (bi, bi)”

You get bonus points if you post a Boomerang of yourself doing the classic *NSYNC dance move at pride. And you also get bonus points if this caption is your way of coming out as bisexual.

3. “Let’s get one thing straight: I’m not.”

Get it? Got it? Good. And don’t you dare ask any questions because we can’t make this much clearer.

4. “Pride Month, Pride Year, Pride Decade, Pride Eternity.”

June may only be 30 days. But our pride and our love for our LGBTQ+ friends will last a lifetime.

5. “I promise that you’ll never find another like me.”

Taylor Swift anyone? She paired up with bisexual king Brendan Urie for her latest song “ME!” which is all about being your unapologetic self. It’s a bop, an anthem, and will undoubtedly be a hit at Pride festivities this year.

6. “Make America Gay Again”

While President Donald Trump is trying to, uh, “Make America Great Again,” we’ll be over here trying to “Make America Gay Again.” Hope you don’t mind.

7. “We’re here, we’re queer, now let’s cheers with this beer.”

Can we get a round over here? We need to cheers to our friends, family, and selves ASAP.

8. “A wise man named Lin Manuel Miranda once said, ‘Love is love is love is love is love is love is love is love.’”

And we still get emotional hearing him say that. Miranda included this quote in his 2016 acceptance speech after he won a Tony for best musical score for Hamilton. He was referencing the tragic Orlando Pulse nightclub shooting, and his words still ring true today.

9. “Being straight was my phase.”

Dedicated to all of the people who told you that you would grow out of being gay, bi, asexual, non-binary, etc. You were all wrong...like, really wrong.

10. “My true colors just happen to be rainbow.”

What can we say? Life is way better in color — all the colors, to be exact.

11. “I can’t think straight right now.”

Sorry, but you’re having too much fun celebrating who you are. Honestly, you don’t think you’ll ever be able to think straight again, actually. Apologies.

12. “Wow, I love being an ally.”

There’s no better feeling than helping your fellow humans gain visibility, representation, and empowerment. Talk about having a full heart.

13. “Society, stop trying to make gender happen. It’s not going to happen!”

If Regina George from Mean Girls marched as an ally in a Pride parade, this would absolutely be her sign. No offense, Gretchen.

14. “YAS QUEEN!”

Whether you’re a Broad City fan or just use the saying on a daily basis, there’s no wrong time to flaunt a “YAS QUEEN” caption. Slay all day with your queen self.

15. “Better out than in I always say.”

Because why not reference Shrek if you can? Sure, he may have been talking about gas. But we’re talking about gays. Make it work!

16. “Bitch, I’m pan-tastic.”

Pansexuals represent! If you’re part of the pan community, you’re automatically pan-tastic. Show it off like you mean business.

17. “It’s time for equality to become a reality.”

We’ve come a long way, but we still have yards to run. Let’s keep this Pride thing going until the point where full equality *is* reality. We can’t wait.

18. “This is what non-binary beauty looks like.”

Read it and weep, people who depend on gender labels and norms. You don’t need gender labels to be beautiful — but you already knew that.

19. “#TeamTrans”

Yes, we support you on your journey to loving your body and finally feeling comfortable in your own skin. Yes, we want you to be happy and live life the best way you can. Yes, yes, yes!

20. “People will stare. Make it worth their while.” — Harry Winston

This is definitely in the same vein as “let’s give them something to talk about,” as Bonnie Raitt once said. If they want to stare, let them and give them a good show while you’re at it.

21. “F*ck the cis-tem.”

We’re over it. It’s time for us to shake up the cis-stem and transform it into something better, something more inclusive, and something that promotes nothing but love. Are you in?

Enjoy Pride Month, everyone. And remember — just because June is the *official* Pride Month does not mean we can’t celebrate our communities every day. It’s simply what we deserve for being our best, authentic selves.
