There's no denying the stir of outrage that has recently spread across the nation after President Trump's announcement on Twitter that he plans to ban transgender people from the military. Now more than ever do we need to stand in unity. No matter what our differences are, solidarity is key when combating attempts to divide us.

I for one can't imagine a world where people don't care about the well-being and equality of others. We can't expect a better world to transpire if we do not make it a point to inspire... one day at a time. It's our responsibility to look out for each other as decent human beings. So, if you're using Instagram as your source to show your love and support for the LGBTQ+ community, here are 15 caption ideas.
