June is Pride Month, Gay Pride Month. The word "gay" has been virtually eliminated from the lexicon of online media, television, and print publications in reference to Pride Month. Have no doubt, June is for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex community.
It's easy to see this month as a time to reflect on our collective past and look towards the future of the gay rights movement. I want to focus on you.
What Have You Done Today To Make You Feel Proud?
I want you to look at yourself in a mirror and ask yourself the above question. Go ahead, noone's watching lol
You need to recognize that you're still here. Yeah I"m sure that you've dealt with some bullshit in your life, but hey, you're still here. You need to pat yourself on the back and really answer that question. So, what can you do TODAY to make you feel proud? You can start by saying, out loud, "I'm still here. Yes, I could complain about the past or I could be fearful of the future. I'm here right now. I made it, and I'm proud of that. I'm stronger than I thought I was, and THAT is why I'm proud of myself."
