Gay and lesbian Pride is an celebration of love, acceptance, and the commitment to sexual freedom. A parade, gay pride party or gay pride parade is an iconic event that is the essence of Gay Pride. But what else goes into making an authentic Gay Pride Parade? What makes a parade an iconic event? The following paragraphs provide the answers to these questions.
For a parade to be truly a cult event it must have a reason and for that cause there must be a conclusion. It should have a purpose and a vision for the future. The GLBT community has many causes; however, certain causes are more urgent than others. One of the main causes of Gay and Lesbian Pride events is community development, advancement of gay civil right, and the creation of a safe and accepting environment for all.
Another reason for the rise of Gay and Lesbian Pride is the need for recognition and acceptance by larger society. The world is becoming more difficult to live with and less accepting. People are more likely to be hesitant and even harass people who are lesbian, gay or bisexual and the world is rapidly changing. This intolerance manifests through physical assaults against the GLBT community and verbal abuse, as well as frequent bullying in schools and colleges and the lack of acceptance from employers as well as other organisations. The repeated acts of intolerance send a clear message to the all of society. It also impacts the lives of others around you, creating an adverse effect on the whole community.
Part of a larger movement for social change, Gay and Lesbian Pride is an integral part of. It is rooted in the civil rights movement from previous decades and has since galvanized GLBT communities to take greater steps towards their goal of full acceptance in society. This push for change that led to the development of Gay and Lesbian Pride parades. These parades are a direct representation of what the GLBT community is fighting for in terms of acceptance and equality rights. In June 1996, San Diego hosted the first Gay and Lesbian Pride march. Hundreds of people showed their solidarity with the gay community during the time.
With the instances of violence against the LGBT community growing over the last few years, it is crucial to realize that not only does the GLBT community have its own battle to be treated equally, but it is also fighting for the right of all people to be free to live and love openly and without discrimination. The struggle for the rights of gay and lesbians is not a new issue. It has been around for many decades striving for equal rights like the rest of us. Despite the fact that the GLBT community has always been fighting for equality and won in the end, it appeared that the fight was heating up in the last few years.
This is the cause of the recent intolerance and attacks against LGBT and gay communities. The recent attacks may be due to the fact that United States marriage issue has stalled. Gay couples are starting to marry in states where they were not legally allowed to. Some blame the gay and lesbian community, blaming them for “promoting” this kind of behavior and making sensitive topics such as religious freedom and equal rights an issue of great interest. Some believe that the civil rights movement has lost sight of its original goal. Perhaps the gay and lesbian communities got too comfortable and then gave up and have stopped working. It is hard to comment on this one way or another.
