Because this is my first in person Pride!!!
YAY!! are you going to any events?
Yes!!! I’m so excited! I think I have plans for the entire month of June!!!
Hey same. Now if I only had someone to spend it with ;-;
this is the first pride after i have realized who i truly am
I wanna say same too but that's already a really long chain
Definitely. First time going as myself instead of the man cosplay.
Lol “the man cosplay.” yes, I feel you hundred percent
Same and congrats! :)
Im happy and proud of you and all those that responded "same" in this thread. Best of luck on your journey 🙂
Exact same reason!
Because I'm living as myself for the first time.
Yay! And I bought a ticket. I'm going to a festival full of women who like women and people call me pretty! First time partying ever, never could with all the depression. It's gonna be awesome alright, I know it.
My city's pride parade is in September but this is my first pride being out! I've grown a lot in terms of being comfortable being out, especially in the past few months.
>My city's pride parade is in September
Why the fuck?
They delayed it last year due to covid, so they had it in September. They decided to just do it in September again this year
It'll be my first pride and I plan on getting some pride stuff
I know it'll be really exciting
It's going to be my first pride event since becoming part of the alphabet mafia :)
Gay marriage im switzerland will be written into law on june 1st
Aww, that's so exciting! Are you from there?
this is AMAZING!!
I have Proudly identified as Queer for 15 years now but this year actually feels like my first Pride now that I've added yet another letter to my identity but this time it feels so right I'm feeling the joy and liberation and self love that Pride is all about and as always I'm so proud to be welcome in this community
im so happy for you!! congratulations on 15 years!!
^ i’m so happy that you’ve found happiness in who you are! 🥳🥳
I'll be honest - I was a bit bummed out when I learned that me and my partner were going away on a weekend getaway right on our town's pride parade, but! I'll still be spending that day with the person I love doing stuff we like, so it's gonna be the best anyway.
i’m glad you’ll be enjoying yourself! 🙂
This is my first pride being my authentic trans girl self
+ I get to celebrate with my girlfriend who is also a trans girl
that’s adorable!! so happy for the both of you!! ![img](emote|t5_2qhh7|550)
Thanks!! She's everything to me ![img](emote|t5_2qhh7|547)![img](emote|t5_2qhh7|550)

^ amazing! so happy for you!!
This is my first pride realizing who I am and being truly happy with myself.
proud of youuuu 👈😎👈
^ YES!! me too! i’m so glad you’ve found your way!!
Because it's my first pride where I can wear my new polyamory flag and be with my awesome partners!
Im planning on coming out this summer so this pride will be special for me![img](emote|t5_2qhh7|550)![gif](emote|free_emotes_pack|heart_eyes_rainbow)
ahhhh same (at least to my friends)! 19 and i’ve just come to the conclusion that i’m bi
so happy for both of you!!
because im finally out to myself
this is the most important part!!
its my first pride month out to 3/4 of my family and all of my friends!!! also my first pride month out of lockdown and i have a whole bunch of new friends ALL OF WHOM ARE QUEER SO YAY!!! I CANT WAAAAIIITTTT![img](emote|t5_2qhh7|550)![img](emote|t5_2qhh7|550)![img](emote|t5_2qhh7|550)
This is my first pride as ace! Last year i already knew i was lesbian, but now that i’ve added another letter, I’m very excited
I'm gonna- find a way to attend a pride event in my area! Oh, and I'm buying a pride flag for my school to hang on campus!
This will be my first pride out as a trans man to close friends and family
i’m so glad you were able to come out, it’s very difficult even in the simplest of situations but finding a way to do it is very commendable
My first pride month that isn't restricted by covid
Also my first pride month with actual pride merch
i need to get some for myself
i feel ya there!!
Because I know I'm trans this time around lol
I'm actually transitioning!
Because it's my first pride not only out of high school, but also realizing I'm definitely more attracted to men (I'm male obviously). It took a while but we got here eventually.
so happy for you!
I'll be officially changing my name! Also trying to kick-start being able to transition 😊
this is GREAT!!
it's my first time going to a pride event and the second one after I came out
This is my first Pride month accepting who I am am!!
This is my first Pride Month fully out and planning to participate! I’m so excited!!!
First Pride with my girlfriend :D and being trans!
the last one i went to, i was a cis gay man, now im a tran-pan woman :)
i’m glad you’ve found yourself!
It’ll be my first pride month being out to my friends! We’re all gonna make pride art and are supposed to spend one weekend just watching lgbtq+ movies :)
love this!! if you have any recommendations, please let me know!!
Some great ones I’ve seen are
Movies: The Prom; The Mitchells vs The Machines; Love, Simon; Tick, Tick…Boom!
Shows: The Owl House, Steven Universe, One Day At a Time, I Am Not Okay With This, Everything Sucks, Shameless
HeartStoppers is my favorite right now!❤️
It’s going to be amazing cause we have been kicking out the cops, and corporations who donors againist us. Instead of a civil parade it will be a riot.
because now I have friends who are in the community and I'll go with them to the csd
sorry, what is csd?
oh, maybe this is just a thing in my country. The csd is a big pride parade with lots of people, big flags and that stuff
i’m getting shoes from converse’s pride selection!!
kinda jealous ngl
It's going to be the best not only because you exist (and you're amazing); but it will rock because of all the other alphabet mafia out there.
Y'all are amazeballs!
It's the first pride month after I found out I was gay :D
first for me after coming out so i’m really excited!! congrats to you!!
The first time since I have finally managed to entirely figure out all of my sexuality and gender!
i love to hear it!
It’s the first time I’m dating since I became comfortable with my real self and not the “me” my family expects me to be. I’m giddy AF (also it’s my GF’s birthday month)
this is so important and i’m finally starting to be able to do it too but i’m really nervous and anxious about all of it 😬😬
because i’m actually going to come out this year... i swear….
(even though i said that last year…. and the year before…)
haha don’t worry, you got this!! i believe in you!!
Because it’s my first one as a not-straight person :)
so excited for you!! it’s my first officially being ‘out’!
Because it's also my last month at my job! So yeah, fun times ahead with my pride gear while I'm just not concerned with passing and being essentially untouchable. If I need time off for appointment with endo or therapist because I finally managed to schedule one but it's on working hours they can choose to either accept my request for vacation time or mark me absent.
Either way, I'm choosing me over the gaslighting and fearmongering ("Your next job might not be as accepting."/"But what if you can't find another job?") and I feel so liberated! That dream every man has about telling work to just go to hell? Well, ya girl is living it this June, only without the sunglasses and explosions and more giggling, spinny dresses and skirts and hugs.
I'm out, genuinely proud and for the first time in my life: actually happy! And it's because of the community being wholesome and accepting and making me feel safe enough to get to that point, both online and IRL. So this Pride Month, I'll be having the time of my life! I hope all of you sweeties and cuties and all round magnificent and amazing people will too! ![img](emote|t5_2qhh7|547)![img](emote|t5_2qhh7|550)![img](emote|t5_2qhh7|548)
i can relate to parts of this on so many different levels. so happy for you!!
Cuz I can finally be fully open with who an what i am with no one to stop me >:3 <3
yessss!! be out there!! (no pun intended)
Aye ^^ thank you
\^\_\^ I got my flag already up an hanging in my window i love it <3
i’ve got mine behind the door i’m my room but i also kinda wanna get an mlm one bc right now my current one is just the typical rainbow one
Awesome :D <3
First Pride after the First Xenogender Visibility Day!!
I'm gonna go for the very first time this year!! My work might put a float in out local one.
It's my first my first Pride month that I will be celebrating and where I affirm myself. Plus I'm thinking of posting something on Facebook about it but most of my family isn't supportive of it especially those who I live with. But fuck them. I've got people who do accept me fortunately.
yes!! yes!! yes!!
I could get my first binder as a trans guy.
In my country school ends in June. Basically me and my best friend (who is genderfluid) decided that we would give each other binder (since we can't get them ourselves because of our transphobic families) as a last gift before starting high school and go partways.
this is amazing!! go you two!!
Going into one with my friends♡
Because I actually know what I am now.
i feel that
Because this is the first Pride Month since coming out to my immediate family!
Because i finally accepted myself!
this is the most important part by far!!
Because I'm not out but plan on painting rocks as the flags
amazing idea!! definitely share that with us here if you end up doing it! we would all love to see it!!
At least 1000 (I don’t know the number) people came out of the closet this year so it will be their most special. I am one of those people
me too, i’m so glad you’ve found yourself and were comfortable enough to tell the ones who you care about and who care about you most!
![img](emote|t5_2qhh7|550)Especially in this subreddit. With many people who are in the lgbtq group, it’s good to know that I can trust every one here. ![img](emote|t5_2qhh7|550)
yes!! we are all here for each other!!
This is the first Pride that I’ve been in a truly happy, stable, gay relationship! And we’re going on a road trip together (my first ever trip with a partner) this month!
My friends want to go on a tour across the country to go to pride events, I'm invited, and the month is going to end with us all getting together again on the last day of June to get drunk and celebrate my birthday.
happy early birthday, and i’m glad you have plans to celebrate!!
It's my first time going to a csd
sorry, what is a csd?
Christopher Street day 😁
oh that’s awesome!!
cause i meet my internet friend for the first time and the biggest reason is to go to a pride parade in my city :D
that’s so awesome!! i’m so happy for you!!
Cuz im finally going to the parade 🏳️🌈🏳️🌈
Because I’m gonna dress how I want and no one can stop me
YES!! THAT’S THE ATTITUDE WE WANT!! GO YOU!!
going to the pride parade with all my friends!
yeah it really is! it’s gonna be my first time, plus i’m finally gonna be able to be open about being transfem
I came out to my fam!
I probably get to go to pride for the very first time in my life and I'm so excited! Does anybody have tips? Like what to look out for or idk
I have no idea but im not here to ruin the mood i still think it will be great just cant explain why
This is my first pride out of the closets
Because this year I have a pride flag!
Because I got bottom surgery just a few days ago :D
Well, it's not going to be for me, but I know there's two weddings I'm attending in June so that's going to be great for my friends.
this is gonna be my first ever pride does anyone know of any events in San Diego Ca?
I wish this would be the best pride month ever, but I'd be lying if I said that.
The town I live in is VERY homophobic/transphobic (well, just the entire general area surrounding) and the city closest to me is holding a pride event, but I won't be able to go. My family is very religious and they won't have anything LGBTQIA+ related in the house, especially my mother. She has scared me enough to where I'm scared that she would send me down to the states (I live in Canada) to go live with relatives so I could get conversion therapy, and also to get away from my friends, who are the only ones who support me and use my preferred name and pronouns.
I would love to go to a Pride Parade but it's just not an option, most I've got are my two flags which my family doesn't know about and pins.
I'm sorry, I didn't mean to vent but it's had me stressed for months and I had to get it off my chest. I didn't mean to bring anyone down, if I did. If I did, I'm sorry
this is the first pride month where i’m going to be out! it’ll be 10 months this june :]
I finally have a bunch or rainbow things, meaning I can actually celebrate! (It will still have to be alone in my room though🥲)
Because this is my first pride as a non-binary lesbian
I might be able to go into a pride parade! Also it's my first pride as a queer person (not as an ally).
happy pride month everyone!! 🙂
