Happy Pride!

by Briana Harry

June is a time when there is joy in the air. You can feel it all around, with summer making itself official, we all loosen our grip, and the comfort and ease sets right in. What a beautifully fitting time to celebrate Pride! Pride Month is the time when the LGBTQIA+ community celebrates and promotes their identities, the continued fight for equality, and increasing visibility.

This is a time for us all to celebrate, whether you identify as someone in the community or not. Here are some reasons why:

  1. Support. Celebrate to show your support for the efforts in creating equality for all communities.
  2. Inspiration. At its core, the concept of Pride is one to be taken in by us all. Be inspired to live and walk boldly in your truth as you genuinely are.
  3. Education. Use this time as an opportunity to learn. The more we understand about one another’s stories, the better we are at closing the gap between us.
  4. Because it’s fun! We can never have too much fun, and so many of us really need it. The celebrations that revolve around Pride month are exactly how they seem. So fun and freeing.

Don’t miss the opportunity to show your support and enjoy yourself, as you are, at the same time. Amongst so many important factors, that’s what Pride is all about.
