So Pride Month is coming up.
In the U.S. ,June is usually recognized as Pride Month.
This is the first year that I will be participating in Pride Month after coming out to my immediate family. My goal is to pin a Bi Pride ribbon to my purse, which doesn’t seem like much but I don’t live in the most accepting area so this is a big step for me.
And recently I’ve seen a lot of posts saying more or less that bisexuals aren’t welcome at Pride, because we have straight passing privilege and that Pride isn’t for us.
Well I only have one thing to say to those people:
It’s called LGBT PRIDE. B is for bisexual.
If you are bisexual, lesbian, gay, transgender, basically anything but 100% heterosexual, heteroromantic, and cisgender you ARE welcome at Pride.
And if anyone tells you differently, you have my blessing to tear them to shreds. Or, if they’re on Tumblr, I’ll do it for you.
