My reflection of Pride 2019

“I want to see what happens when I don’t give up.”

Pride is supporting your friends as they fully introduce themselves as their true gender. 

Pride is supporting the folks who don’t feel comfortable coming out because they live with a very judgmental family. 

It’s laughing with my dear friends about anything at all ─ and comforting them through their hardships and battles.  

Pride is celebrating every little accomplishment we have ─ especially as so many of my friends are open about their mental health struggles, addiction, and suicidal thoughts.

Ultimately, Pride, to me, means claiming your identity and owning that identity with a smile on your face ─ even though it can (and will) cause you to have so many dark and depressing moments in life.
