THE MONTH OF JUNE 2016
…. a very special month of the year ….
June is a very special month for the LGBT community.
Foryears, it has been marked as PRIDE month.
Many celebrations take place all over the world.
Parades are here, there and everywhere.
It’s a time when we come together, in the LGBT community, to celebrate our existence, to commune with others like us and with allies.
Gay pride or LGBT pride is the positive stance against discrimination and violence toward lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people to promote their self-affirmation, dignity, equality rights, increase their visibility as a social group, build community, and celebrate sexual diversity and gender variance.
Pride, as opposed to shame and social stigma, is the predominant outlook that bolsters most LGBT rights movements throughout the world. Pride has lent its name to LGBT-themed organizations, institutes, foundations, book titles, periodicals and even a cable TV station and the Pride Library.
As the month winds down, we reflect upon our right to exist, our right to be recognized as equal, our right enjoy life to the fullest anad our right to happiness.
A somber note dulled the celebrations this year.
2016 will always be remembered as the year when 49 beautiful souls were suddenly and senselessly taken in Orlando during the Pulse nightclub shooting.
We remain standing and strong in every sense of these words.
We are here to stay.
