What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?



Carra Sykes

GLAAD has joined forces with Teen Vogue to launch the #20under20 list, highlighting young LGBTQ people who use their platforms to advance acceptance, equality, and visibility for LGBTQ people. The profiles are posted on Instagram and are each accompanied by a wonderful illustration by Carra Sykes.

You can read about these inspiring young people below and on GLAAD’s Instagram, and you can see more of the wonderful art by Carra Sykes on Instagram.

    • I’m really impressed. I know there were loads of young Baby Boomer activists, too. I wonder what happen to us Gen Xers? We certainly worked all the time, so it wasn’t laziness. I guess we just got complacent. Anyway, I’m glad this generation is inspired. Seems like they’re doing great work.


  2. This is great. We used to hear all the time about how young people were apathetic and disengaged and basically the pond scum of society. I have never believed that to be the case but I really appreciate the fact that now we are highlighting the contributions young people make to elevating all sorts of issues in the public consciousness. I also hope that the visibility of these particular young people encourages LGBTQ+ children growing up in less favourable contexts to never compromise on who they truly are.
