June is recognised as Pride month across the pond in America and luckily for all of us, it’s making a huge impact over here in the UK with many big Pride events taking place this weekend in August!
Just in case you haven’t noticed or haven’t searched for the #pride #lgbt or #gay hashtag on social media, here’s a little breakdown of what this is all about and why it’s still important in 2019.
The Pride celebrations create a safe environment for members of the LGBTQ plus community. Lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer and the plus – this includes people or persons that identify as questioning, intersex, asexual, ally, pansexual, agender and non binary. While sometimes labels can be confusing and seem never ending, people within the community can find solace in identifying and being proud of there own so called label.
