Introduction

 

Love and community is what pride is all about. The LGBTQ+ community every year comes together to celebrate our love for the community we are a part of. We come together with open arms and acceptance regardless of who you are. We march together in the parades across the world to be visible and proud of each other. Proud of where we have come from and where we are going. Love is never ending in the LGBTQ+ community and let’s make sure we continue to show the world that we love unconditionally.
