pot, you know of great things going on. People of all backgrounds find
a community her in New York city. Regina E. King: Just seeing the flag gives
me hope. Also gives me courage to just be myself. It’s that love of like seeing people that are like you, that makes you feel like
I belong too. So pride for me is every day. Michelle Lopez: You’re here. You matter and
you’re welcome.
