Pride Month has been celebrated since 1970, after the Stonewall Riots in New York that took place the previous year. It was not the first LGBT Protest, but it was memorable and marked an event where Transgender/Gay/Lesbian population said this is enough bullying. The celebration of this month has been blurred through the decades with much more emphasis on partying rather than remembering that the LGBT community has been and still is harassed, scrutinized, belittle and continually oppressed. We show Pride in ourselves, our community and we are not any less than others. Everyone be safe.
Below is a picture of the first Pride Parade back in 1970.
I figured the cast of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia at a previous year’s Pride Parade was worth a re-post, because they’re awesome!
