Pride a deep feeling of pleasure , satisfaction then why only for LGBT community then , why pride a separate community ? When pride belong to each one of us. Why not pride our pride? I always stand up for social issues so i decided to talk about LGBT, bisexuality, gay, lesbian and more of about the society which is above all PRIDE
pride is a community that promotes self-affirmation, dignity, equality, and increased visibility of lesbian, gay, bisexual, LGBT, and various subcultures. This is the community which stands out for ,Heterosexuality, Homophobia, Biphobia , Transphobia, Sexualism, conformist pressure that exists in larger society.
Pride foundation is building a better, safer and more equitable world for every sexuality. The month of June is claimed as a pride month since decades. They have various symbols like rainbow, pride flag, a lower case Greek letters lambda, the pink triangle and the black triangle.
Why a rainbow flag?
The different colors in flag reflects diversity as this community stands out for various sexuality and subcultures. The flag contains eight strips of different colors and each stripe has its own meaning. Pink represent sex, red represent life, orange represent healing, yellow represent sunlight, green represent nature, turquoise represent magic and art, indigo represent serenity, violet represent spirit.
They represent such a big diversity but they are still kept away from us. we are told to keep distance from them because they are not like us.yes, they are not like us selfish, craving for needs, separate. They Stand out for each other, they are United . Yes ,they are more human than us.
Foundation of pride
Brenda Howard ,a bisexual woman. She was known as Mother of pride
Howard was also credited for laying the foundation of pride celebration which is now leading up to the modern day pride parades.
Why the term ‘queer’ is used for them?
The term queer means strange, odd. This term is used to refer the people of pride community. They accepted this term happily and accepted they are different.
But why the term queer for them when they are homosexual, homo means same and we are heterosexual, hetero means different. Which means we are the odd one out they are not. Then , why pride a separate community?
No, They don’t bite
they aren’t vampires they won’t force your child to be a gay
pink and purple won’t look gay on you
if you prefer shirts over skirts they won’t say you lesbian
Yes, they are just like us
Why, when i hold my girl best friends hand in public they call me lesbian
Why? Aren’t they like us
The article 377 , the freedom of love taken from us,
In a country which celebrates freedom every year,
why their generation a trans generation ? A separate community?
Why we are not in their community, why they are not in ours?
Support and voice out for LGBT community . Educate yourself about LGBT, lesbian, gay. Show them you care and we are same. Be friends to them ,let them come out , accept them and empower them.
Let’s normalise the fact they are homosexual or bisexual because they are not less than heterosexual. Wipe out the stereotypes, don’t question sexuality, don’t push them back.
If you are standing out for gender stand out for sexuality too.
- Being a part of LGBT community won’t make you less of a human.
- Being straight won’t make you more of a human.
- believe in pride because it’s not just a hashtag anymore.
- Don’t follow pride because it’s a trend follow because u believe in it.
Let’s make pride our pride not just a hashtag
