Pride has always been an incredible experience for me. I still remember my first Pride–I nervously showed up draped in a rainbow flag, not knowing to expect.
I had to learn to be proud, and how to accept myself for who I am. I was lucky, because I had a safe home and supportive parents. But too many youth don’t have that. Too many youth are taught to feel shame. They are bullied, assaulted and harassed. Our own schools, and too often our homes, are not safe for us.
I was lucky, but not everyone has my luck. That’s why my pride is always political.
We need your help.
