Our queer community is filled with more than just LGBT. We are super diverse. There is no “one way” to be queer. There is no rulebook. Queer people of color and gender variant people’s do not have to fit in the toxic white patriarchal heteronormative structure of society that is pervasive in the QUEER community. PRIDE is a civil rights movement that is not just one weekend a year. It is constant community building. AIDS Education, feeding and sheltering our at-risk LGBT, political activism and so much more! The parade is fun and the club scenes afterward are LIT. But that’s just the celebration! Us queers are celebrating another year of work and another year of surviving in a world that wants to ELIMINATE US! No matter how you celebrate PRIDE please do it responsibly, plan ahead, do not drive drunk and use sexual protection!
HAPPY PRIDE! CELEBRATE! ....and that is the FINAL WORD!
