Hi all, sorry this is a few days late again.
However this week seeing as it is Pride season again, I went to one of my local prides with one of my best friends, because it reminds me that no matter how closed off the area that I live in is, there are still people like me out there.
So that’s why it is important to celebrate pride when you are part of the LGBT community and also live in a small village where you aren’t always as accepted as you should be. It was fantastic on Saturday to see most of the LGBT community come out to support Norwich Pride, they had their old Norwich Pride banner out to start the parade and then the massive 50 foot pride flag that people carried above their heads whilst on the Pride march.
Then the nicest part of the day is seeing all the different families supporting Pride and possibly supporting other members of their family who have come out as part of the LGBT community and how proud they all are to march as part of the parade, is just amazing.
It’s so important to remember just how far the LGBT community as a whole have come over the past few years, even though we’ve come a long way, there’s still a long way to go yet and that cannot be forgotten!
Following on from that, there’s been some debate in the news just recently with some teachers who have come out to their different classes that they teach, people have been opposing that, but I am going to ask you one question, pupils go to school to learn, is that not part of learning? It’s part of life now, so they are going to have to learn that it is ok to like girls if you’re a girl, just like it’s ok to like boys if you’re a boy, so its better that students get to learn that sooner rather than later is it not?
If you have any questions or opinions on the paragraph above please post them in the comments box below, it’d be quite interesting to give some of them a read.
Right signing off now, sorry the last bit is a little rant, but I felt that it needed to be said.
lots of love
