Target's Pride Manifesto video transcript

[poignant piano music]
"We're not born with pride
We're not born knowing
where our life will lead,
the obstacles we'll face
the joy we'll find
the heartbreaks we'll feel
We're not born knowing
these milestones
are also stepping-stones
in helping us find our footing
in what we stand for
and who we'll stand by
in searching for the words
that help us find our voice...
To be heard
to be seen,
to belong,
accepted for how we live,
respected for who we love,
and that what we overcome
gives power and shape
to what we become.”
[crowd cheering]
We're not born with pride.
We take pride,
pride in celebrating
who we were born to be.”
