The beauty of PRIDE is that it doesn’t discriminate. The LGBTQ+ community has always been discriminated against in some form or another. PRIDE month is a chance to join together, regardless of age, gender, sexual preferences, mental or physical disabilities,and demonstrate how we’re moving towards a world where everyone is accepted and differences are celebrated.
PRIDE month is a chance to embrace each other’s differences, regardless of what they may be and to celebrate each and every person’s individuality!
COVID restrictions shouldn’t put a complete stop on you being able to celebrate pride month! It just means it’s time to think outside the box when it comes to celebrating!
