How to Celebrate Pride Month

1 June 2021
Written by: Angel Gondra

 

Gender equality is one of the most significant issues and advocacy in our modern world. However, it is more than just the equality between men and women and the equal rights and treatment we give to the LGBTQ or the LGBTQIA+ community.

 

Years ago, we commonly used only four letters to describe the minority group of various sex and gender. We added letters to represent each as the community continues to evolve as specific language expansion represents the diverse group.

 

The word LGBTQIA+ stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning or Queer, Intersex, and Asexual or Ally.

 

The origin of Pride Month can be traced back to June 28, 1969, when the Stonewall Inn, a known gay bar in New York City's Greenwich Village, was raided by the police. Days of protests erupted around the country, igniting a national outpouring of activity and elevating the battle for LGBTQ equality.

 

The word "pride" intends to be an affirming celebration of the LGBTQIA+ community's achievements. Therefore, June is recognized as Pride Month to commemorate the anniversary of the Stonewall riots.

 

Wondering on how to celebrate Pride Month amidst pandemic?

 

There are numerous ways on how to celebrate Pride Month. But since most of us can't still gather together for this event, it is much safer and better to start educating ourselves more first and be aware of this social issue while having fun by watching movies related to the LGBTQIA+ community:

If you would like to enjoy watching with your kids, Disney+ Short Film Out is a great choice. It is experimental storytelling that tackles the issue of gender equality in a gentle yet touching way.

 

There are still many other movies out there that touch the issue of gender equality and LGBTQIA+, but this list would be a good start to know more about them and the challenges they face in society. If you are a book-lover, you can also try reading some books that introduce you to LGBTQIA+ worlds, like the book Pink is for Boys, or the stories that feature same-sex families like Heather Has Two Mommies or Daddy, Papa, and Me.

 

In this modern world, where adversities are always just around the corner, we should learn how to respect and support each other by promoting equal and fair rights regardless of gender. Happy Pride Month, everyone!
