imagine: bts @ pride festival
Seokjin- Agrees to wear three inch heels and a corset with his jeans if it means he can sit on top of their float and wave the whole time. Looks fucking amazing and rubs it in everyone’s face, both as a group and at least once to each as an individual. Wins an award he didn’t know he was up for. Gets hit on by half a dozen people and has no idea until Namjoon tells him the following day. Buys everyone a water and a souvenir. Gets himself a sparkly pink button that just says “Princess Bitch” on it. Brings up every embarrassing thing he witnesses of the other members at every opportunity for three weeks.
Yoongi- Wears exactly what he always wears, but with a tiny rainbow sticker on his cheek. Complains about the glitter. Complains about the noise. Complains about the walking. Stops complaining when Hoseok kisses him on the mouth. It doesn’t mean anything, but upon shutting up Yoongi entwines his fingers with Hobi and smiles along with him the rest of the night. Gets a button with the date and “PRIDE” on it. Later discovered that a picture of him and Hoseok kissing made it across half the internet and into three newspapers. Can’t explain how he finds 30 condoms in his pockets the next day. Vows to never go again.
Hoseok- Puts rainbow chalk in his hair and paints his face. Takes off his shirt and writes FREE HUGS on his chest in rainbow. Beats personal hug record, including every single person with a sign apologizing for their past homophobia. Kisses yoongi on the lips to shut him up, fully aware that they’re right in front of Jungkook’s camera. Engages in an extremely sexual dance off with a guy from the gay rodeo and gets his number. Steps away for ten minutes to help a family marching nearby with their grumpy child by carrying it on his shoulders. Gets a “look at me now” pin. Cries.
Namjoon- Wears a supportive t-shirt and rainbow suspenders and gets a rainbow flag to wear like a cape. Laughs and hides his face when Jimin grinds on him for reasons unknown. Tae tries it, too, but Namjoon is staring at Jin’s outfit and doesn’t notice. Goes to give a protestor a piece of his mind on Jungkook’s behalf, ends up hitting him on accident, tries to play it off as dancing. Loses his wallet. Gets an “all you need is love” button, which he puts on his computer bag, always wishing someone would ask where he got it. (No one ever does.)
Jimin- Black booty short, stilettos, about 40% of a shirt. Feels tall and confident. Grinds shamelessly into the air. Grinds shamelessly on Namjoon. Grinds shamelessly in the faces of the protesters. Laughs about not looking as good as Seokjin does in his corset. Briefly loses his confidence, but oh my god this is his jam and he can’t believe they actually played it can you believe it Yoongi- oh he’s occupied. Meets drag queens through Taehyung, thrilled. Lets a drunken lesbian lick his abs and leave a lipstick stain on his neck. Jealous that Yoongi got his picture in the media and he didn’t. Gets a button that says “kiss my ass” and a winky emoji.
Taehyung- Also heels and booty shorts, but his are rainbow instead of black, and he just wears a sash instead of anything remotely resembling a shirt. Make-up on point. Meets back up with some old drag queen friends, gets 8 million pictures. Holds one of every flag the whole night. His smile gets glitter in it, but he doesn’t care, because it’s his glitter. Tries to grind up against Namjoon, gets ignored. Tries to grind up against Jungkook, gets a blush and an elbow to the ribs. Grinds against protesters. Ends up putting all the flags in his back pocket so he can hold sparklers, walks so they wave. Gets a button that says “Warning: Bigots get DRAGged to hell.” Drags everyone (including Yoongi) back the following year.
Jungkook- Dressed normally, save a rainbow bandana around his neck. Lowkey checking out everyone there through his camera lens. Close to tears when he sees protester, but meets a dog and gets over it. Takes pictures of said dog, and later finds Namjoon in the background of one, hitting a protester in the face. Ignores it. Won’t stop asking what each flag means. Takes the picture of Almighty Jin that wins Jin an award. Takes a picture of Yoongi and Hoseok and kissing, shows it to Taehyung, and doesn’t understand when he starts receiving funds from newspapers over the copyright. Ends up a hundred dollars and 16 dog pictures richer. Gets a button that says “I Survived PRIDE” but still wonders how every time he sees a rainbow.
