A State of Pride…

What is this thing called Pride?

Gay Pride, Lesbian Pride, Transgender Pride, LGBTQIA  (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning, Intersex, Asexual) Pride?

What about Bear Pride?  Twink Pride?  Lipstick Lesbian Pride?

Do I want to go to a Pride Celebration this year?  No.  Do I feel I need to go?  No.  Do I feel like I shall miss out on something good if I do not go?  No.

Am I deciding not to go?  No.  Am I choosing not to go?  Yes.

I just took a quick visit to http://dictionary.reference.com.  The word pride is a noun, and the first definition is listed as “a high or inordinate opinion of one’s own dignity, importance, merit, or superiority, whether as cherished in the mind, or as displayed in conduct, bearing, etc.”

Are you proud of being a Lesbian?  A Gay Man?  A Transgender person?  A Bisexual?

Are you proud to be a Bear?  A top?  A bottom?

What are you going to do to celebrate your Pride?  And shall you do this only in June, or do you do this every day?

I AM proud to be a Gay Man, a Bear, a Witch, a professional Psychic, a Sacred Son of Goddess, and a WordPress Blogger.
