In commemoration of the ongoing Pride Month, several WWE Superstars have taken to social media to lend their support to the LGBTQ+ communities.

As seen below, the likes of Sonya Deville, Finn Balor, Seth Rollins, Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair and several others shared photos from a WWE photoshoot while showing solidarity with their friends and loved ones in the LGBTQ+ communities.

Meanwhile, former WWE announcer Cathy Kelley was seen at the LA Pride Parade with Deville and her partner.

Every June, WWE joins organizations across the world in celebrating Pride Month, which is observed to commemorate the struggles and victories of the LGBTQ+ communities. Although WWE has previously used ambiguous or explicit sexual innuendo to portray gay characters, Sonya Deville believes the time has arrived for a full-fledged LGBTQ Superstar to debut on WWE TV.

“I mean, it’s not something that I ever think about like that, right? It’s always just like, ‘Yeah, I am who I am, and I’m a WWE Superstar,’” Deville told WKBN. “But obviously, I realize the effect and influence it has on other members of the LGBTQ community, and I love being a part of that. That change in that kind of power that I can give to them, like, ‘Hey, if I can do it, you can do it. And if I can be myself unapologetically, so can you. And you should never be ashamed or afraid of who you are or who you love. You should simply just be.”

Deville continued, “Just as you would have a male Superstar on the phone with their wife in a backstage segment or interacting with another female, you just have two females or two males interacting. You know, or maybe I’m on the phone with my girlfriend while you’re filming backstage, you know, something like that, that just allows the inclusivity to be there and not in a forced inorganic way, kind of just how it is in life.”
