Welcome to June’s photo challenge! This month is all things Pride as it’s (not really globally, but a lot of people go all out this month) Pride Month.
Please remember this is a HP/JKR free zone. A hate free zone. And there is no supporting of toxic authors from me whatsoever (toxic can encompass a lot of things).
As always, interpret these prompts however you would like to! And don’t forget to use #LMSPride2021 so I can see your photos, too!

Day 03 – Characters You Want To Hug
So I may have had a specific person in mind when I wrote this one, but it applies to so many LGBTQ characters.
