"I'm really excited for more black and brown people to be centered in Pride Month in a way that I hope continues going forward."
As for how Adele is celebrating, she shares: "I'm just celebrating pride by being my authentic self."
"Right now we are not all physically together, well we are in protest, but a lot of it will be on social media in remembering that so much about pride was led by Black people fighting for justice and on the other side of that so much of the Civil Rights Movement was led by LGBTQ community, who weren't always highlighted."
"I'm just glad we can be loud and proud as queer people in the movement for Black liberation and in the movement for gay rights as Black people. I'm really excited about the intersectionality of it all that we can fight for freedom on all fronts without needing to choose."
