I am very proud to be an ally of the LGBTQ+ community. I have grown up in a very open-minded environment and was lucky to be exposed and educated on this community. My high school provided us with enough information about it to be an ally and show support towards others.
With that said, Pride means showing the world who you are; not being afraid of who you are attracted to and showing off who and what you love about others as well as yourself. A friend of mine is a transgender woman and I have never been so proud of someone for going and doing what they wanted to do, no matter what others thought. Being able to watch the transition, the beauty, the rawness, and everything else was so amazing, and I am so happy I was able to witness it. Those in the LGBTQ+ community need the support from us, no more negativity.
Mental health is so important and being there for those who need it is the first step to a healthy mindset. I would like to say how proud I am for those celebrating pride month for themselves. They deserve the world, and it’s finally at their feet.
HAPPY PRIDE MONTH TO THE LGBTQ+ COMMUNITY!
