The summer so far has blessed us with many things; the Harry Styles Tour, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj dropping new music, and the (possible) engagement of Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber. But one thing I'm most thankful for this summer is the month of June, or as I like to see it, the best month of the year- Pride Month! During the month of June, cities all over the United States will be celebrating the history, tribulations, and equality of same sex marriage and love over the next couple of weeks, with festivals, parades, concerts, and many other events! Since the passing of the Same Sex Marriage Law in June of 2015, hundreds of thousands of couples have been able to start their lives with the person they love- regardless of gender or preferred sexual orientation!

Many stories of the community are never heard, but today that changes. here are some stories from members of the LGBTQ+ communities, their stories, experiences, and what makes them so special!

Cody, Bisexual/Queer

"He was confused and still has questions to this day, but he always makes it known that he loves me no matter what"

Mark, Bisexual

"Pride is living your best life without feeling shame for who you are and who you love"

Jenny, Pansexual

"It's who I am and the people that matter to me respect that."

Hunter, Gay

"opening up and being true to yourself is so important..."

Anonymous, Lesbian

"pride is important because it allows individuals to embrace and embody who they are..."

As a Friends fanatic myself, I often wonder about the places in New York City featured in the various episodes and whether I could actually visit them. Most of them are fictional or no longer exist, but there are a few places you can go to reminisce about your favorite Friends moments. So, here are 6 places in New York City you definitely need to visit as a Friends fan.

1. The Apartment Building, Obviously

The building used for the exterior shot of the apartments in Friends is real, and is located at 90 Bedford Street at the corner of Grove Street in Greenwich Village. It's an obvious must-see.

2. The Pullitzer Fountain

This is the fountain that the friends danced around in for the iconic theme song, and it's located right in Central Park.

3. Bloomingdale's

This is the department where Rachel worked before she moved on to Ralph Lauren, where she met Joshua, and where she started her career in fashion.

4. The Plaza Hotel

This is where Monica and Chandler celebrated their engagement in The One WIth Monica's Thunder, and is actually really gorgeous.

5. The Central Perk Replica

While Central Perk isn't a real coffee shop, a pop-up replica opened up in 2014 on Lafayette Street and it's definitely a must-visit.

6. Chandler's Office

The fictional Chandler works in the real Solow Building, located on West 57th street.

This past week, the Jonas Brothers released a song and music video starring their wives (and in Joe's case, fiancee), completely shocking fans given the fact that there was pretty much no prior warning. As rumors are running rampant about their getting back together and a possible tour, now seems like a good time to reflect on their past. Specifically, my favorite songs that they've written. And if the rumors are true...I hope to find new favorites soon.

1. "Inseparable"

2. "Australia"

3. "Hold On"

4. "Shelf"

5. "Can't Have You"

6. "Turn Right"

7. "SOS"

8. "Sorry"

9. "Black Keys"

10. "First Time"

11. "Hey Baby"

12. "Paranoid"
