We just cannot be wrapping up this month without making this enlightening article about June and it’s significance worldwide.
Better put, did you know that the month of June could be interchangeably referred to as “pride month”?
If truly we exist in a free world, I think a person’s sexuality so long it is not harmful to a partner, but mutually consenting and not forced or performed with an underage should be respected.
If you live in the developing countries where LGBTQ+ is a strong offense and punishable by law, you may have no idea what this is. To those who do that is quite interesting but to those who do not.
Here’s a quick expository of why it is called “pride month”.
Pride month is simply sexual, the Wikipedia refers to it as “Gay pride or LGBT pride is the promotion of the self-affirmation, dignity, equality, and increased visibility of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people as a social group.”
Pride, as opposed to shame and social stigma, is the predominant outlook that bolsters most LGBT rights movements.
Hence, most persons in the United States legally marks the month to recognize this differences in sexuality and therefore gives them equal right to be who they are.
LGBTQ+ as it is commonly referred to is a movement for this set of persons who aren’t straight in their sexuality to be treated and allowed to feel and be respected just as straight people.
What does the LGBTQ+ Rainbow flag represent? The original flag featured 8 colors, each with a distinct meaning assigned by Baker: Hot pink (Sex), Red (Life), Orange (Healing), Yellow (Sunlight), Green (Nature), Turquoise (Magic/Art), Indigo (Serenity), Violet (Spirit).
Currently, they are about 21 different LGBTQ+ flags all with their unique meanings created by different persons.
