June is Pride month and it’s a time to celebrate love in all its shapes and forms. It’s something I think everyone should celebrate in their own way as it really celebrates all of us. It’s celebrating what makes each and every one of us unique as individuals and our right to love whoever we wish however we wish. It’s about accepting the individuality of each person and saying everyone is valid in the way they wish to live and their voices are all worth hearing. I think that’s something we should all take pride in.
For me, celebrating Pride means listening to lgbtq+ artists, possibly reading an lgbtq+ book, and exploring movies featuring lgbtq+ characters. This world is full of colorful people with all walks of life. Celebrating the uniqueness of culture and ways of being is important to me. The message of Pride is a beautiful one. We should all be proud to be who we are and being the best versions of ourselves.
No matter how you chose to celebrate Pride this month, know that you are valid and worthy of love. Being a part of this community can be beautiful, but it can also be difficult. There are times when others won’t accept you for who you are and it’s hard to think that someone could hate you for simply living your life authentic to you. But, choose to shine your light anyway. You are all beautiful and worthy people. Live your lives well and spread your joy. You all deserve it. No matter what your color of skin, religious beliefs, or sexuality.
