LGBTQ+ Social Media Awareness Days for Your Content Calendar in 2023
Social media managers who oversee LGBTQ+ brands use their platforms to recognize, celebrate, and engage with the queer community. Allied groups and even your dentist’s office might, as well. Considering the number of these “social media holidays”, exhaustive coverage is, well, exhausting.
In case you haven’t noticed, there are a lot of “days.” And every day, there’s a new “day” for something. Awareness days, historic days, Throwback Thursdays and Flashback Fridays, days of remembrance… even National Noodle Day, which is not technically on this list, but if you’re creative, it could be. (It’s October 6th.)
Each day below is linked to an “official” site or reputable resource for context, and some even provide suggested graphics and copy.
