It's this awesome time of year again!
June marks the LGBTQ Pride Month all over the world. Many LGBTQ people wait all year for this one month, the streets get painted with rainbows, motivational queer and trans speakers share their stories, and we are all reminded how far we've come for LGBTQ-rights and how much more we have to fight to be treated fairly. =3

Just a heads up... don't ask "where's straight pride month".
Avoid looking dumb by not saying that. πŸ‘

β€œWhen you hear of Gay Pride, remember, it was not born out of a need to celebrate being gay.
It evolved out of our need as human beings to break free of oppression and to exist without being criminalized, pathologized or persecuted.
Depending on a number of factors, particularly religion, freeing ourselves from gay-shame and coming to self-love and acceptance, can not only be an agonising journey, it can take years.
Tragically some don't make it.
Instead of wondering why there isn't a straight pride be grateful you have never needed one.
Celebrate with us.”
-------------------------------------------------------
β€œIf you are in the closet and fall in love with someone of the same gender, it doesn't automatically remove the shame and fear that's kept you locked away. The love you are experiencing encourages you to face the reality that this is who you really are and also has the power to set you free. The richness, beauty and depths of love can only be fully experienced in a climate of complete openness, honesty and vulnerability. Love, the most powerful of human emotions, is calling you to freedom and wholeness.”

I'm gonna share my opinion from the other homophobic thread, sorry for the copypasta:
While i agree that sometimes awarness events might get overboard, the original intent is to reminder people that we (or they) exist and that you should not be afraid or ashamed of being yourself. That said, i despise when people take this philosophy way too far, like displaying overly flamboyant parades that serve no purposes other than reinforcing stereotypes, playing the "flashy and girly homosexuals" card. This results in people having that kind of "i didn't expect it from you, you don't seem the type" attidude, like what? Because i'm not behaving like a girl, so i must be obviously heterosexual?

Part of the reason parades are sometimes overly flamboyant is that for many people taking part, it is the only time they can really indulge themselves.

What you're saying is along the likes of "it's ok to be gay, just don't act gay"

Yeah well the truth is that flamboyant homosexual people are a small minority. It's a stereotype, furthered by the usual attitude towards the common perception of gay people. I know exactly one guy that blatantly shows the usual feminine slant and she's currently undergoing gender change therapy. Problem is, if parades shows only that kind of people, or at least they're what commonly sticks in the general perception, it means that not displaying blatant attitudes will label you as a "not really gay", "confused", or "just a phase".
For most homosexual people, "not acting gay" means being a perfectly average guy because there's not acting behind at all. They just are. That's the main reason why coming out is really difficult for some: aside from possible violence or prejudices, the perspective of facing uncomfortable questions might just be better avoided for personal inconveniences.
(I don't know if i was clear enough, i should really improve my english)

I understand, and to some extent agree.

with one exception: transsexual/transgender is something different. But that's a longer discussion and I'm probably not the best one to conduct it

I see your point, and think it's a good one, but also have to counter-point that even non- gay pride parades are usually pretty darn flamboyant!

The local pride parade last month certainly had some of what you were talking about, but also plenty of just regular old normal people too (but this is also in a city where the cross-walk is painted in a rainbow color year-round).

Many LGBTQ people wait all year for this one month, the streets get painted with rainbows, motivational queer and trans speakers share their stories, and we are all reminded how far we've come for LGBTQ-rights

Maybe it happens like that in big towns, but in rural areas LGBT people get the usual "eww gross" treatment they get every single other month of the year when they mention the subject :/

Even though there's still a lot to be done, it shouldn't stop people who want to celebrate from doing so. Everyone, LGBT or not, have a nice June :)

I've never been comfortable with pride, in any form. Whether it's being proud of who you are or what you've done, it's never sat well with me. If I ever catch myself being proud of something, it automatically triggers some introspection on whether that's really justified. That's probably just me, though, as most people seem to be perfectly OK with taking pride in various things.

"Gay pride" makes me uncomfortable for this reason -- the pride, not the gay. I do realize that "gay pride" is less about being proud of the fact that you're gay, and more about being proud that you're not afraid to say so (or even that you're saying so despite fear). Still, if it was "gay awareness month" or "gay rights promotion month" I'd like it better -- though I suppose that's not as catchy.

is it merely the nomenclature you have issues with? Because a rose by any other name would smell as sweet

Basically. Although rainbows don't smell, and while I'm loathe to argue with the Bard of Avon, if roses were called pusmoisters, I'm pretty sure people would actually claim they smelled worse.

Also, not using the word "pride" would remove the need to argue against things like "why isn't there straight pride month", as people are a lot less likely to ask the question "why don't we have heterosexual rights month" (unless they really want to demonstrate their ignorance and prejudice while doing so).

A good counter to that is: because nobody was ever insulted/thrown out into the street/spat on/lynched/raped/killed for being straight.
I see your point but it's Pride because for so long (and still today) LGBTQ people were told to be ashamed of who they are and who they love.

That's a good counterpoint. I hadn't considered pride as the simple antonym of shame yet.

Thanks. I get where you're coming from and it took me a while to "get" it because I was taught "pride" was a sin. I am glad you are open-minded enough to consider other perspectives. It's rare when it comes to issues like these.

A very good speech in Sense8 on the matter, echoing that point

To be honest, I felt quite stupid after your remark. Like, of course it's pride in the sense of not being ashamed, duh. It's the difference between feeling pride from a "neutral" starting point, and feeling pride from the complete opposite starting point.

Fortunately there's no shame in ignorance, if you make honest efforts to get rid of it. :-)

I live in a rural community so if I go around in rainbows or anything that indicates my queerness I'll be attacked, but it's awesome to see the LGBT stuff online and know that in other places you can go out in the street to shout it out with no violent repercussions <3 <3 <3

(also that is the best gif ever for rainbows and i will be using it against any trolls i get on twitter this month.)

I'm sorry to hear that. If it's any consolation, in my suburban community kids are now able to be out and queer without mockery or prejudice or hostility against them. That was not the case when I was a kid. So things are slowly getting better. We just have to keep working, keep preaching tolerance and acceptance, and hope that we will eventually reach the point where everyone will be free to be themselves and no one will have to fear physical violence.

Can confirm! I've lived all of my long life in that town where every JRPG begins, and when I was little, things were so bad that even white people were racist against each other. It's slowly gotten better over the years, and there were times when I thought I had to get out, but I'm not going to uproot my entire life, just because their attitudes suck. If they have a problem with what I am, instead of who I am, they're just going to have to find a way to deal with it. Thanks, Mully, for this lovely thread and giveaway event!
