Primarily aimed at promoting LGBTQIA acceptance and equality and raising awareness of and erasing stigma associated with mental illness, the acceptance revolution is a movement of the simple yet powerful practice of unconditional acceptance and an online safe space to share stories of personal experiences with acceptance (or lack thereof). However, these stories are not limited to, nor do they end with LGBTQIA or mental health communities.
Whoever you are, wherever you’re from, and however the lack or loss of feeling accepted and having somewhere to belong may have manifested in your life, the accompanying pain is real, and it matters, and this space is one where we can find community through comfort in our overlaps, establishing common ground with those who may, on the surface, seem so vastly different from us…. because where our respective experiences may be as dissimilar as night and day, the general, underlying feelings are the same. And, by this token, the acceptance revolution is for everyone, an all-inclusive community that opens its arms to anyone who’s ever felt they didn’t fit in for any reason and says: “Here is where you fit. Here is your place to belong. Be you, and be at home.”
