“What people think Pride is:
• Rainbows
• Parades

What Pride actually is:
• Celebration
• Being valid in the closet to stay safe
• Boring everyday life as your authentic self
• Having community
• Feeling free
• Loving yourself more than needing to be loved by others
• Surviving hard sh*t
• Still rainbows
• Being accepted and respected as ourselves
• Gender euphoria
• Protecting trans youth
• Fighting for equal rights
• Honoring those who paved the way (especially Black trans elders)
• Feeling at home in yourself
• Validating intersections
• Queer sex”

Pride this month, next month and every month!
