What does PRIDE mean to Zara? "I've always loved going to 'Pride.'" I always go to the parade in Stockholm whenever I'm home... It's just an amazing time to celebrate love. I've had so many amazing people in the LGBTQ family around me since I started in music and I'm so lucky to be able to work with so many talented people and have them as friends. Going there with that group of friends and seeing them live out their lives -- like, we're just having fun! I'm super happy I get to be a small part of that."

What does PRIDE mean to Ava? "Not conforming into anything our world wants us to conform to. It's about what you want to be, and then doing it with pride, and love, and passion. Also, influencing people around you to be who they want to be."
