QueerKing23

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


Y9L8L7O6M5

im so happy for you!! congratulations on 15 years!!


THE_NY_ISLANDER_FAN

^ i’m so happy that you’ve found happiness in who you are! 🥳🥳


Hornborg

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.


THE_NY_ISLANDER_FAN

i’m glad you’ll be enjoying yourself! 🙂


LittleMissTrapet

This is my first pride being my authentic trans girl self + I get to celebrate with my girlfriend who is also a trans girl

RedactedAdler

This will be my first pride out as a trans man to close friends and family


THE_NY_ISLANDER_FAN

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

I'm actually transitioning!


THE_NY_ISLANDER_FAN

awesome!!


MishMashandWhatNot

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.


THE_NY_ISLANDER_FAN

so happy for you!


DeckofManyDisasters

I'll be officially changing my name! Also trying to kick-start being able to transition 😊

CorvidCelestial

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 :)


THE_NY_ISLANDER_FAN

i’m glad you’ve found yourself!


the_imaginative17

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 :)


THE_NY_ISLANDER_FAN

love this!! if you have any recommendations, please let me know!!


the_imaginative17

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!❤️


skymtf

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.


just_noriza

because now I have friends who are in the community and I'll go with them to the csd


THE_NY_ISLANDER_FAN

sorry, what is csd?


just_noriza

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


khakishortswearer

i’m getting shoes from converse’s pride selection!!


THE_NY_ISLANDER_FAN

kinda jealous ngl


Ninja_In_Shaddows

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!


THE_NY_ISLANDER_FAN

:D :D


cara7880

It's the first pride month after I found out I was gay :D


THE_NY_ISLANDER_FAN

first for me after coming out so i’m really excited!! congrats to you!!


Spotsallover

The first time since I have finally managed to entirely figure out all of my sexuality and gender!


THE_NY_ISLANDER_FAN

i love to hear it!


MyLittleDonut

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)


THE_NY_ISLANDER_FAN

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 😬😬


SuperDietCola

because i’m actually going to come out this year... i swear…. (even though i said that last year…. and the year before…)


THE_NY_ISLANDER_FAN

haha don’t worry, you got this!! i believe in you!!


WalnutAlpaca860

Because it’s my first one as a not-straight person :)


THE_NY_ISLANDER_FAN

so excited for you!! it’s my first officially being ‘out’!


SleepyLadyC

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)


THE_NY_ISLANDER_FAN

i can relate to parts of this on so many different levels. so happy for you!!


No_Butterscotch3201

THE_NY_ISLANDER_FAN

No_Butterscotch3201

THE_NY_ISLANDER_FAN

Kat_reddits

criticaltrek

I'm gonna go for the very first time this year!! My work might put a float in out local one.


THE_NY_ISLANDER_FAN

oh nice!!


LeanAhtan92

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.


THE_NY_ISLANDER_FAN

yes!! yes!! yes!!


_0XC4llM3EmeryX0_

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.


THE_NY_ISLANDER_FAN

this is amazing!! go you two!!


lilithium666

Going into one with my friends♡


imbroken_0

Because I actually know what I am now.


THE_NY_ISLANDER_FAN

i feel that


littlemissmusique

Because this is the first Pride Month since coming out to my immediate family!


THE_NY_ISLANDER_FAN

same!!


GrayBeeUwU

Because i finally accepted myself!


THE_NY_ISLANDER_FAN

this is the most important part by far!!


Random_MonkeyBrain

Because I'm not out but plan on painting rocks as the flags


THE_NY_ISLANDER_FAN

amazing idea!! definitely share that with us here if you end up doing it! we would all love to see it!!


WATERMEL0N-SHARK

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


THE_NY_ISLANDER_FAN

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!


WATERMEL0N-SHARK

![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)


THE_NY_ISLANDER_FAN

yes!! we are all here for each other!!


IcyConsideration4714

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!


THE_NY_ISLANDER_FAN

yay!!!!! 🤩🤩🥳🥳


silvercandra

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.


THE_NY_ISLANDER_FAN

happy early birthday, and i’m glad you have plans to celebrate!!


LuckyBear05

It's my first time going to a csd


THE_NY_ISLANDER_FAN

THE_NY_ISLANDER_FAN

Selection_Clean

THE_NY_ISLANDER_FAN

❤️🧡💛💚💙💜


Fantastic_Biscotti69

I came out to my fam!


Original_A

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


Fried_Ice_Creem

I have no idea but im not here to ruin the mood i still think it will be great just cant explain why


DefinitelyAwen07

This is my first pride out of the closets


DrinkingTeaNow

Because this year I have a pride flag!


WolfGuardia

Because I got bottom surgery just a few days ago :D


Positive_Cricket4291

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.


scholarmxge

this is gonna be my first ever pride does anyone know of any events in San Diego Ca?


99_xProblems

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


justanothergayinasub

this is the first pride month where i’m going to be out! it’ll be 10 months this june :]


t0xic_owo

I finally have a bunch or rainbow things, meaning I can actually celebrate! (It will still have to be alone in my room though🥲)


Just_a_randdom_gurl

Because this is my first pride as a non-binary lesbian


MettatonNeo1

I might be able to go into a pride parade! Also it's my first pride as a queer person (not as an ally).


THE_NY_ISLANDER_FAN

happy pride month everyone!! 🙂
