Everyday Pride

All through the month of June there are Gay Pride celebrations in virtually every major city in the US, which pretty much makes June "Gay Pride Month".

But pride (or Pride, capital "P") isn't something you do just one month out of the year.
Pride is something we do every single day.

    Here are some examples of every day pride:

  • Introducing your lover as your "partner", "Boyfriend" or "husband" instead of "roommate" or "friend" to new (straight) aquantainces and not caring what their reactions are.

  • Holding hands with your partner in public places.
    Not to make any kind of "statement", but because you feel like it.

  • Not "straightening" up the homestead (taking down that Tom of Finland print from the wall and removing More Joy of Gay Sex from the bookcase, and so forth) before family or other guests visit.

  • Not caring if anyone knows you're gay - because everybody knows!
What have you done today to make you feel proud?
