Weekend Hashtag Project is a series featuring designated themes and hashtags chosen by Instagram’s Community Team. For a chance to be featured on the Instagram blog, follow @instagram and look for a post every week announcing the latest project.

In many countries around the world, June is Pride Month, and for the second year running, we’re celebrating with #WHP🌈. The goal this weekend is to make photos and videos of people celebrating diversity, love and the LGBTQ community. Here’s how to get started:

  • The rainbow is a key symbol of the LGBTQ community. Look for rainbows in your surroundings or create your own.
  • If you attend a parade or local pride celebration, make a video or Boomerang that conveys the energy and atmosphere around you.
  • Whether you’re with friends or on your own, take time to learn more about the people you photograph — and what pride means to them; share quotes or meaningful reflections on your encounters in your caption.

PROJECT RULES: Please add the #WHP🌈 hashtag only to photos and videos taken over this weekend and only submit your own visuals to the project. If you include music in your video submissions, please only use music to which you own the rights. Any tagged photo or video taken over the weekend is eligible to be featured next week.
