Airbnb Releases Pride Video In Honor Of National Pride Month


By thelaegotist / / Airbnb released a film to demonstrate the power of the Airbnb community in creating a sense of belonging and acceptance of people regardless of age, race, gender, sexual preference or religious affiliation. The stories in the film not only illuminate reasons for hope, but also serve as examples and inspiration for steps we can all take to create a more welcoming world. Produced in honor of National Pride Month, the film features real stories from Airbnb hosts and guests who overcame struggles to fit into their communities. Hasan Namir, is a gay Muslim author and avid Airbnb traveler; Chase Blodgett, an Airbnb host and transgender hockey player; and Park Cannon, an African-American gay Airbnb traveler who recently won a seat in the Georgia House of Representatives. The film aims to showcase acceptance and inspire others to #HostWithPride – to ultimately create a more inclusive and welcoming world where we can all truly belong. Airbnb believes Pride is not the responsibility of the LGBT community alone — real power and progress are only possible when everyone’s fingerprints are represented.
