It is important to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community and everything they've overcome.

Everyone is different and special in their own way, and instead of alienating people for who they are, it's time we applaud those who have chosen be totally and unapologetically themselves, uninhibited.

Plus, whether it comes to friendships and relationships, we’re all the same, no matter who we love or how we identify.

Whether you’re gay, straight, or anything in between, it’s always fun to share clothes with your best friends, flirt with the cute guy from the coffee shop and find the perfect people to date... and your zodiac sign is the PERFECT way to do so.

Our zodiac signs say a lot about the way we run our lives, place our priorities and spend our time, so why not look to the stars to find out who to date next? You never know the new type of person you'll meet next.

That said, a lot of the time when reading about who to date based on astrology, the LGBTQ+ community tends to be forgotten in the conversation. And that should NEVER be the case.

Capricorn is probably the most responsible sign, which kind of makes him "the mom friend". He somehow always knows what to do, whether you’re lost in the middle of nowhere trying to get to a music festival or in desperate need of an Uber, but everyone is too trashed to find their cell phone (hint: you’re holding it).

Capricorn likes being known as the responsible one because it means he always keeps a level head in everything he does. He is incredibly ambitious and won’t take no for an answer. Whether he’s asking you out or he’s applying for a new job, he doesn’t often back down.

Pisces' head is always up in the clouds, but only because he’s dreaming of all the people and things he loves. Even if he seems spacey, chances are good that he’s just thinking about the plans you’ve made with him or what he wants to watch on Netflix with his boyfriend later.

With all of that dreaming going on, it’s no wonder that Pisces is often caught up in his thoughts. He is a very introspective person, which makes it easy for him to over-think things.

He is a complicated person by nature, but when he’s with his friends and significant other, all his worries and thoughts float away. He vastly appreciates the people in his life.
