#BringInTheBaranGAY: Kumu Celebrates the Pinoy LGBTQ+ Kumunity with a Month-Long PRIDE Party Online 🌈

June 21, 2023 | 3 mins read

This Pride Month, Kumu presents #BringInTheBaranGAY, a month-long celebration embracing the Pinoy LGBTQ+ movement. Filled with fun and meaningful app-wide activations and brand partnerships, the campaign seeks to provide more exposure and support for the Pinoy LGBTQIA+ Kumunity worldwide. With this month’s celebration, Kumu expands its mission of providing an inclusive platform where every individual can showcase their creativity and authenticity with PRIDE.

Since its inception, Kumu has always championed itself as a safe online space for Filipinos from all corners and walks of life. By embracing diverse individuals, giving them a platform to share their talents, make a living off their creativity, and make real connections, Kumu has created a global Kumunity where all colors have the chance to shine. 

With the SOGIE bill still in limbo, the call to provide safety and support for the LGBTQIA+ community is more urgent than ever. So as part of celebrating PRIDE, Kumu continues to contribute to the conversation by shining a spotlight on our LGBTQIA+ advocates and allies and amplifying their voices.
