LGBT Pride Month

on

Heya all,

I thought I would do a little post on the LGBT Pride Month, this pride month is to commemorate the Stonewall Riots. Although many people still don’t know why LGBT people still need a Pride festival all these years down the line, and yes of course I know the answer to that and this answer is very simple… it is to celebrate not being criminalised anymore for loving the people that they want to love, if fact this year (2017) we celebrate 50 years of homosexual decriminalization. So this year more than any other year the Pride festivals couldn’t be more relevant.

I can still remember going to my first Pride festival, I was scared and nervous because I didn’t know what to expect to be quite honest with you, although I must admit I thoroughly enjoyed it because everyone came together and joined in the massive parade that went around the city centre, everyone was laughing and smiling as well as singing along to whatever music was playing at the time. There were couples of Mums with their children dressed in rainbows and couples of Dads with their children dressed really smartly too, it was a pleasure to be part of it and to feel proud of the community that I belong to.

If this year or any year is your first pride festival, don’t be scared or nervous like I was, be happy and be prod to be part of our wonderful community. Also please feel free to share your Pride Festival memories in the comments below!!

    Wonderful blog! I found it while surfing around on Yahoo News. Do you have any tips on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Appreciate it
