June is Pride Month

First, let me give photo credit to the U.S. Embassy Nassau for the iconic rainbow flag displayed next to this article. A flag of these colors is displayed at every U.S. embassy and consulate worldwide, even in countries where homosexual activity is deemed illegal.


LGBTQI+ Pride Month occurs in the United States to commemorate the Stonewall riots, which happened at the end of June 1969. Why is Pride so important? To celebrate diversity and let acquaintances and family members know they are accepted for what they are. ​One person said, "I celebrate Pride because it's important to keep LGBTQ+ issues in the news. Pride is an outlet that lets us celebrate ourselves and showcase threats to our rights as Americans."


Across the world, Pride parades are held in most major cities. A Pride parade is an outdoor event celebrating lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender social and self-acceptance, achievements, legal rights, and Pride. The events also sometimes serve as demonstrations for legal rights, such as same-sex marriage.



However, there is a backlash forming in many countries that do not endorse Pride activities. @ModerateMozlems tweeted the following picture with the text "In the streets of Qatar."



Some Islamic countries do not appreciate having Pride logos displayed in their jurisdiction. In this case, the anti-Pride logo shows the family adults protecting the children from Pride propaganda. It seems like the U.S. has the same problem. There have been numerous instances where blatant LGBTQI activities have been performed in the presence of young children.
