For Gay Pride Month, Billboard asked numerous pop culture luminaries to write 'love letters' to the LGBTQ community. Below, comedian Chelsea Handler shares hers. Read more Pride Month love letters here.

The LGBTQ community is a swath of people that we need to keep safe. We have to reach out our arms and hearts and embrace them without hesitation or judgment. They are strong, they are fierce, and they are us.

Every time the LGBTQ community succeeds, the whole world moves forward. We must always focus on the people who will help move our country forward. Love, tolerance, and respect. Thank you for all that you do. You are loved. You are revered.
