It is almost the best time of the year. Pride is so close I can almost smell the perfume of all the drag queens. We all looking forward to the one month of the year that we get to celebrate our community, its history, and the progress we have made. Though the fight for our civil rights is far from over we are better off than when we began the fight.Coming Together As One Family
Pride is a yearly event where we all come together as one community and one family. We are reminded that we are not alone and that we deserve to be allowed to be our 100% genuine selves all the time. These are all things that we need to apply to our lives all year long.
We need to make sure that we are always being an inclusive group and are accepting and welcoming to all members of the LGBTQ+ community. We should not exclude and have a bias towards any of our brothers and sisters. If you do, it is time for you to do some serious soul searching and get your mind right. Because you are part of the problem.Remember the Principles of Pride All Year Long
When pride ends and you return to your everyday life, you can not forget what pride stands for. Stay proud of your community and who you are. Fight for your rights and the rights of every other member of the LGBTQ+ community. One way that you can help yourself to remember the principles of pride is by owning pride merch.Cover Your Life With Rainbows
Every time you see all of your Pride merch you will remember all of the principles that Pride stands for. While the best place to buy Pride merch is normally at a Pride festival, shopping online for merch comes in at a very close 2nd.
You can find just about any type of pride merch you can dream of through a quick internet search. It doesn’t matter if you identify as genderqueer, pansexual, demisexual, or lesbian, you can find a pride flag that is made especially for you. Once you find the pride flag that represents your identity you can find shirts and anything else you want with that flag on it.
If you prefer the classic rainbow pride flag you will be able to find everything from belts, to hats, and anything in between. If you would like something you can wear as a daily reminder of the values of pride, rainbow pride rings are a great option and give you a fashionable way to display your pride.
Hanging a Pride flag at your home is very important for visibility. The more Pride flags people see the more they realize that they know and love more gay people than they thought. This will hopefully lead to those people becoming allies to help us in our fight for civil rights.Show Your True Colors
It is time to load up on Pride gear. Go ahead and start hunting for the Pride merch that perfectly represents you. We are all individuals and there is merch available that will let you celebrate your Pride in that individuality.
