LGBTQ Pride Parades!!
In the modern era, where discussions are generally made on the equality of males and females, we forget the proportions, though small, of one other existing community LGBTQ. Gender and sexuality are not the things which we can decide by ourselves. This is god-gifted. Though some call it curse!
I shall now tell you some points about Pride month. Every year in June, LGBTQ Pride Month is celebrated. The month of June was chosen to commemorate the riots held by members of the LGBTQ community against a police raid on June 28, 1969. These riots were a tipping point for the gay liberation movement in the United States. The uproar also paved the way for the modern fight for LGBTQ rights across the globe. Since past few years, LGBT Pride Month events draw millions of participants from around the world. In-person gatherings take place across the nation, including pride parades, parties, concerts, symposiums. The rainbow LGBTQ flag is prominently displayed throughout the month.
I always wondered why LGBTQ people needed to have a day, a flag, a parade to celebrate. Now I know, this is because there is the need to remind people of their very existence in this world and that they deserve to get all those human rights as others possess. Let me edify you all with the peculiar marginalisation, discrimination and ill-treatment they face without being at any fault. Their conditions are inconspicuous. Rather they are one of the most vulnerable groups. So of course it makes sense that Pride rallies are a safe place for such people. It is an annual event in which they celebrate their specialty telling the world that they are proud of themselves.
There is the need for all countries, rich and poor, to recognize the basic dignity of its citizens, all citizens. Imagine a world where queer voices are heard and queer lives are valued. As long as ordinary people like us stand up for their rights, the dream of a bright future for them will never disappear. As long as we stand together, we comprehend with one another, we’ll evolve as the true humans.
P.S. : We need to a have a third column in the space of gender!
