3 Diversity Rules Magazine July 2018 LGBTQ adult entertainment site, XTube, attended New York pride on Sunday 24th June, cel- ebrating through the streets with their eye-catching float. ey were campaigning to normalise gay sex and better LGBTQ sex education. e XTube float was joined by influencers Chantelle Connelly, Helen Briggs, Vas J Morgan and Eddie Jarel Jones, who all em- braced positivity, equality and in- clusivity with flamboyant outfits and wigs. eir presence meant XTube's campaign was broadcasted to thousands of their followers, high- lighting their movement to end the stigma surround- ing gay sex. e streets were buzzing with a positive and empow- ering atmosphere as XTube got everyone cheering with their extravagant float. Littered with bondage chains, handcuffs and a 12 foot, penis-shaped can- non towering over the crowds, influencers and reality stars stood on the float labelled 'make love not war' and held signs that read: '#mysexualitydoesnotdefineme', '#girlswhokissgirls' and '#boyswhokissboys'. Marchers in support of the campaign danced down 5th Avenue following the float, stopping for interviews and inter- acting with the crowds. XTube felt that due to their influence and importance within the community, they offered the perfect plat- form to promote tolerance and education at pride. It is hoped that with these posts from people of influ- ence and the support of influential porn sites such as XTube, the campaign will encourage open and hon- est conversation about LGBTQ relationships and sex. e campaign aimed to reassure those in the LGBTQ community that they are supported and not defined by their sexuality. roughout their lives, heterosexuals are told sex is natural and normal. However, this is not always the case for everyone in the LGBTQ community. Accord- ing to a Human Rights Campaign report, only 12% of millennials said their sex education classes included mentions of same-sex relationships. is lack of proper sex education can mean many of the LGBTQ com- munity are at a higher risk of contracting STIs. For ex- ample, studies show that young women who identify as lesbian, gay or bisexual are more likely to contract an STI than their heterosexual counterparts. Porn plays huge influence in many people's lives and it's often used as a way of self-educating when it comes to sex. For the LGBTQ community in particular, it's one of the only ways of learning about their sexuality.
