June is LGBT Pride Month, and I wonder who can truly say that they knew that? I mean, aside from attending a Pride parade because you can, whatever your sexuality, it seems that having Pride and showing pride are entirely disconnected. Such a shame, right? Like for any month where you show pride for what you are, it is a shame that some think that it should be confined to a month; but to not use such recognition on a national scale is even more so. The issues aren’t under the radar, everyone else is just looking over the rainbow. I’m not saying sashay with a rainbow flag because you think you should, I say do it because you know what it stands for. My hometown Pride Parade will be held on June 26 this year. I’m pretty sure open minds are on the list of items allowed. Don’t be a drag, or a queen, just be who you are, and let everyone else have the same. Though just because this is LGBT Pride Month, don’t feel pressured about issues like coming out, or same-sex marriage. This month is about support, unity, not alienation. Though, who wants to join an alien nation? Learn a bit this month about the LGBT community and I’m sure you will.
